Astronaut Alex Gerst captured from ISS the irrigation system of Wadi ad-Dawasir, Saudi Arabia.

In the middle of the Arabian desert the city Green Oasis Wadi Al Dawasir is being developed as a new urban center for the Wadi Al Dawasir region of Saudi Arabia. Huge solar fields supply the entire city and the surrounding region with energy. Hundreds of circular agricultural fields are fed by center pivot irrigation apparatus, drawing water from subterranean aquifers.

The local scenery on the ground is as follows.
