Caption: Moorea, French Polynesia, as seen from the International Space Station (ISS). North is at bottom. This tropical island is in the South Pacific, 17 kilometres north-west of Tahiti. It is about 16 kilometres across, with its highest elevation being 1207 metres. Tropical forests cover the volcanic mountain slopes, and a barrier reef circles the island and its shallow lagoons (light blue). The two main bays (lower centre) are Cook's Bay (left) and Opunohu Bay (right). The largest settlement is Pao Pao, at the head of Cook's Bay. The island's population in 2007 was just over 16,000. Photographed by an Expedition 7 crew member on 13 September 2003.
