Description
ISS014-E-15767 (1 March 2007) --- Guanaja Island, Honduras is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 14 crewmember on the International Space Station. Guanaja Island is located along the southwestern margin of the Gulf of Mexico, approximately 60 kilometers north of mainland Honduras. The island is situated near the western edge of the Cayman Ridge, a topographic feature comprised of rock types indicative of ancient volcanic islands, sedimentary layers, and ocean crust. The Ridge formed as a result of tectonic interactions between the North American, South American, and Caribbean Plates. Guanaja and the nearby islands of Roatan and Utila (not shown) comprise the only portions of the western Cayman Ridge currently exposed above water. The island is also notable for its largely undeveloped character -- the exception being highly concentrated development on Bonacca Cay, a small island (roughly 0.5 kilometers by 0.3 kilometers) located along the southeastern coastline of the main island. The main island has little in the way of roads or other infrastructure -- a canal is the major means of traversing the island - making it an attractive destination for hikers and eco-tourists. The clear waters and reefs that almost completely encircle Guanaja also attract divers. In 1998, hurricane Mitch destroyed almost all (97 percent) of the island's mangrove forests, impacting coastal habitats and resulting in soil erosion. Regeneration of mangroves is slow and active reseeding efforts have been suggested as the only means to restore the forests.

ISS015-E-25057 (3 Sept. 2007) --- This view of Hurricane Felix was taken from the Earth-orbiting International Space Station (ISS) by an Expedition 15 crewmember using a digital still camera equipped with a 28-70 mm lens set at 32 mm focal length on Sept. 3, 2007 at 11:39:56 GMT. The ISS was located at the nadir point of 20.4 degrees north latitude and 80.4 degrees west longitude, over Pickle Bank, the waters between Grand Cayman Island and Cuba. At approximately noon GMT, Hurricane Felix was near 14.2 degrees north latitude and 76.9 degrees west longitude, about 260 miles (425 kilometers) south of Kingston Jamaica, and 425 miles (685 kilometers) east of Cabo Gracias a Dios on the Nicaragua/Honduras border, moving west at 21 miles per hour (33 kilometers per hour). The sustained winds were 165 miles per hour with higher gusts making it a category 5 on the Saffir-Simpson scale.

ISS015-E-25044 (3 Sept. 2007) --- This view of Hurricane Felix was taken from the Earth-orbiting International Space Station (ISS) by an Expedition 15 crewmember using a digital still camera equipped with a 28-70 mm lens set at 28 mm focal length on Sept. 3, 2007 at 11:38:29 GMT. The ISS was located at the nadir point of 16.0 degrees north latitude and 84.0 degrees west longitude nearly over the coast of eastern Honduras when this image was taken. At approximately noon GMT, Hurricane Felix was near 14.2 degrees north latitude and 76.9 degrees west longitude, about 260 miles (425 kilometers) south of Kingston Jamaica, and 425 miles (685 kilometers) east of Cabo Gracias a Dios on the Nicaragua/Honduras border, moving west at 21 miles per hour (33 kilometers per hour).
