So it is not only a different continent, but also a different day in one picture.
The islands are nick-named “Tomorrow Island (Big Diomede) and “Yesterday Island” (Little Diomede) because of this.
Oddly enough the time-difference between the two is 21 hours (and not 23) due to the local time zones.
As you can imagine there is quite a lot of talking and thinking of connecting the continents here, by bridge or tunnel.
