That is neat!
What is it?
It is a volcanic island
in the Kuril chain between Kamchatka and Japan. The island's orientation appears here rotated 90° clockwise, so that west is up and north is to the right - original image is an astronaut photo taken from the ISS about two weeks ago.
The motto of the Corbettite Order seems to be Ite Animose... a Latin phrase that can be translated as "go courageously." Alternatively, it can be rendered as "boldly go," which bears a striking resemblance to a phrase heard during the opening credits of a certain popular television series.
