Twelve km off Taiwan’s NE coast lies Turtle Island, a forest-covered volcanic island. The bluish patch of water on the island’s eastern side (nicknamed the Milky Sea) marks the site of dozens of hydrothermal vents, spewing out hot, acidic water laden with heavy metals and toxic gases. The image was acquired October 4, 2020, covers an area of 10.6 by 13.9 km, and is located at 24.8 degrees north, 122 degrees east. (credit BBC News for this information)
