The Azores

Hundreds of miles off the coast of Portugal, the nine islands of the Azores chains are stretched out over the Atlantic Ocean. This Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image from the Terra satellite on May 1, 2003, shows seven of the nine islands: (from left to right) Faial, Pico, Sao Jorge, Graciosa (north), Terceira, Sao Miguel, and Santa Maria.
