Day 12 answer: South Georgia. The image was captured by the MODIS instrument, which is on aboard the Terra and Aqua satellites operated by NASA. The instrument acquires imagery across 36 spectral bands. Terra's orbit is timed so that it passes from north to south across the equator in the morning, while Aqua passes south to north over the equator in the afternoon.
