Ukiangong Point

Ukiangong Point is the southwestern-most point on Butaritari atoll located in the Pacific Ocean island nation of Kiribati. It is located on the islet of Tabonohobi.

Ukiangong Point was fired upon by the USS Nautilus shortly after 7 AM on August 17, 1942, after the submarine had dropped Lieutenant Colonel Evans F. Carlson's Marine Raiders for their approach to Little Makin as part of the Makin Raid. Later in the war, the capture of Ukiangong point was an early objective in the U.S. Army's assault on Butaritari on November 20, 1943.
