Just 14 miles (23km) southeast of Lord Howe Island in the southern Pacific Ocean, Balls Pyramid is a jagged basalt spire spectacularly spearing 552 metres out of the sea. Formed about 7 million years ago, windswept and inhospitable, it is regarded as the world's tallest sea stack. Ball's Pyramid has a few satellite islets - Observatory Rock and Wheatsheaf Islet, both located nearby, and Southeast Rock, some 2 miles (3.5 km) away.
Lord Howe is a tiny sub tropical island 320 miles (550 km) off Australia's eastern coast in the southwestern Pacific Ocean, 450 miles (770 km) northeast of Sydney.
