Where is 45N latitude and 60E longitude?
That point is roughly in the middle of the blue area on maps labeled the Aral Sea, although the sea itself has largely dried up. The sea forms the border between Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, but my map doesn't show the boundary line where there should be water, so I can't say which of those two countries the point is in.
