Haiti and Dominican Republic - August 5th, 2010

This image focuses on the island of Hispaniola, home to the countries of Haiti (left half) and the Dominican Republic (right half). Two large islands are visible near the Haitian shores: Gonâve Island, to the west, in the Gulf of Gonâve, and Tortuga, to the northwest. Both belong to Haiti.

Other islands can be observed to the north. The group just north of the shallow, light blue bank, belong to the Turks and Caicos archipelago. The one in the upper left corner is Mayaguana Island, belonging to the Bahamas. In the full image, the island of Puerto Rico can also be seen to the east of Hispaniola.
