Mayotte Island, Indian Ocean | International Space Station



U.S. Astronaut Randy Bresnik: "Nestled between the continent of Africa and Madagascar the stunning Mayotte Island is ringed by its eye-catching reef."

Mayotte is an insular department and region of France officially named the Department of Mayotte. It consists of a main island, Grande-Terre (or Maore), a smaller island, Petite-Terre (or Pamanzi), and several islets around these two. The archipelago is located in the northern Mozambique Channel in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Southeast Africa, between northwestern Madagascar and northeastern Mozambique. (Source: Wikipedia)
