About Midway Atoll

Midway Atoll is a 2.4-square-mile atoll in the North Pacific Ocean. As its name suggests, lies nearly halfway between North America and Asia, and almost halfway around the world from Greenwich, England, near the northwestern end of the Hawaiian archipelago, about one-third of the way between Honolulu, Hawaii, and Tokyo, Japan. Midway Atoll is an unorganized, unincorporated territory of the United States, and the former home of the Midway Naval Air Station (former ICAO PMDY). For statistical purposes, Midway is grouped as one of the United States Minor Outlying Islands.
