 (JPG) Antikythera Island, Greece (40,935 bytes) ( 610 x 686 )
Antikythera is a Greek island in the Aegean Sea. With a population of 44, its main settlement is the port of Patamos. In 1900 sponge divers found a 1st century BC shipwreck, yielding numerous bronze and marble statues, as well as the corroded remnants of the oldest known analog computer. Known as the Antikythera Mechanism, it is a complicated device of dials and wheels that plotted the positions of the sun, five planets, phases of the moon, and solar and lunar eclipses. The image was acquired on 29 September 2013, covers an area of 9.2 x 10.3 km, and is located at 35.9 degrees north, 23.3 degrees south.
