No. You're in the right ocean, though.

Did nobody read their history books? 6 are immortalized, when 12 should be remembered.

Is it Iwo Jima? Mt. Suribachi?

I'm guessing it's in somebody's computer, because it doesn't look like it's on this planet, and I've never seen anything that high resolution come from a spacecraft. ;)

Oops. I edited the question to read "What is this?" It may not be a fair question; want a different pic?

Are you asking what planet or moon of a planet? I'm a bit confused. Is this an actual picture or not?

Sorry about that. I think I should withdraw the picture as I have learned that it is an internet hoax. Since I posted (thanks, Phinz, for making me think to check it out), I found that Snopes has it listed as a created picture supposedly of sunset at the North Pole; it was, in fact, created by an astronomer using digital imaging. My bad. Shall I post a different picture, or skip my turn?
