Haiti

The Caribbean island of Hispaniola, jointly occupied by Haiti and the Dominican Republic, dominates this space station view of the earth. Haiti, with its northern and southern pincer-like peninsulas, takes up the western third of the island, while the Dominican Republic occupies the triangular eastern two-thirds. Haiti's capital of Port-au-Prince lies at the eastern end of the notch-like bay named Canal de Saint-Marc. Photo courtesy of NASA.
