Assateague Island, a national seashore 37 miles (58 km) long, can be seen in this west-looking low-oblique view. Assateague is a barrier island. A wildlife refuge makes up part of the island and is home to the famed Chincoteague wild ponies. The island is mostly uninhabited by human beings. Near the upper left portion of the image is the Pocomoke River. The mainland area seen in the upper third of the image is part of the Delmarva Peninsula.
