  Title: Island of Timor, Indonesia
  Description:
  This almost totally cloud free, photo of the island of Timor, Indonesia 
  (9.0S, 125.0E) illustrates the volcanic origin of the over 1500  islands of 
  Indonesia.  Close examination of the photo reveals several eroded volcanoes 
  on the Island of Timor and several of the adjacent islands.  The linear 
  alignment of the volcanoes, as seen from space, indicates the edges of the 
  tectonic plates of the Earth's crust where volcanic activity is most
  common.
