Above photo shows two islands in sea facing each other silently.
These are not ordinary islands. They are located in Bering Straits.
They belong to two Super Powers – Russia and USA and represent two different days of calendar at any given time because the international date line passes through them.

They are just 2.4 km apart from each other.

The bigger one is called Big Diomede with an area of 29 km2 with no population,
belongs to Russia and part of Siberia – 25 km from main land.
International Date Line is about 1.8 km east of this island.

The smaller one is called Little Diomede with an area 7.3 km2, with a population of 170, belongs to Alaska – 25 km from main land.
International Date Line is about 0.6 km west of this island.

On a clear day, by looking at Big Diomede from Little Diomede –
one can see ‘tomorrow’ as the time difference between the two islands is exactly 24 hrs.
