Stange. This island shows up in the satellite view in a different place than the map view. The map view also shows two more similar sized islands to just a bit to the north that aren't there in the satelite view.

"...four islands with active oil wells that have been decorated with different colored walls about a mile offshore. They are named for astronauts who died while being a part of the effort to reach the moon (Island Grissom, Island Chaffee, Island White and Island Freeman)." (from

"Island Chaffee, Island White and Island Freeman are artificial islands containing oil drilling equipment. However, the islands are sheathed in pastel colored, modernistic walls which cloak their industrial activity. Society wants the oil but doesn't want to see the activity which produces it." (from
