This image, acquired by the MODIS on the Terra satellite, shows the Gilbert Islands, located in the central Pacific Ocean. The Gilbert Islands are a chain of 16 atolls and coral islands, and are one of the island groups that form the Republic of Kiribati. The islands are about 930 miles north of Fiji, and the equator runs through the center of the islands, right through the center of the image.
