The Kerguelen Islands (also known as the Desolation Islands) are part of the French Southern and Antarctic lands. Located in the southern Indian Ocean, the islands are among the most isolated places on Earth, more than 3200 km away from the nearest populated location. The largest island is Grand Terre (120 by 150 km), with the capital city of Port-aux-Francais. Total population is around 100; all travel and transport is by ship. The French Space Agency operates a satellite and tracking station near the town. The image shows the eastern part of the island, and covers an area of 43 by 35 km, is located at 49.3 degrees south, 69.4 degrees east, and was acquired February 27, 2009.
