Space Shuttle photograph of Oahu, where Honolulu is located. Oahu is 71 x 48 km in size, and is comprised of two old shield volcanoes, the Waianae volcano lies to the west (left in this image) and the Koolau volcano is to the east. The inlet seen on the southern coastline is Pearl Harbor. Just to the right of Pearl Harbor is a long white patch; this is the main runway at Honolulu International Airport.
