Wrangel Island

Sep 12, 2019 - National Geographic Orion


Today we made two very special landings on Wrangel Island. Our first site was located at 180°W—or was it 180°E? This is an intriguing location where you can stand on 180° longitude, putting yourself in both the East and the West simultaneously. We also had the chance to visit the Wrangel Island Ranger Station to get a taste of what life is like living on the Island.
