Image Caption: STS045-153-0AD Beringa Island, Russia March 1992
The largest of the Komandorski Islands, the snow-covered island of Beringa (Bering) can be seen in this west-looking view. Beringa Island is located east of the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Bering Sea. The island is 55 miles (90 km) long and up to 15 miles (24 km) wide. Beringa is a treeless island with hills. The island is foggy and is prone to earthquakes. The scant population on the island is involved mostly in fishing.
