STS066-085-018 Choiseul Island, Solomon Islands November 1994
Choiseul Island is one of several volcanic islands that make up the island nation of the Solomon Islands in the southwest Pacific Ocean. The axis of this double chain of islands is oriented northwest to southeast. As viewed in this color infrared image, (dense green rainforest are presented in shades of red), Choiseul Island is characterized by thickly forested mountains. A few roads (thin, light-colored lines) can be traced through parts of the dense jungle near the northwest end of the island. Several small islands and coral reefs (lighter-colored areas) are visible along the northwest tip of the island and along the northeast coast.
