Bylot Island

I know I shouldn't but I can't really hear the name "Devon Island" without thinking of cream teas.

Devon Island is the largest uninhabited island on earth, properly huge at 55,247 km2 (21,331 sq mi) it's even got a 23km (14 miles) wide meteorite impact crater from about 39 million years ago in the late Eocene which is well cool.

Air temp: +3ºC Latitude: 74º30'N Longitude: 83º31'W
