Cape Hooker (South Shetland Islands)
Cape Hooker is the south-eastern point of Low Island, in the South Shetland Islands of Antarctica. The feature was roughly charted by nineteenth century sealers; it was further charted by Commander Henry Foster in 1829 but shown as the north-eastern point of the island. Following air photography by the Falkland Islands and Dependencies Aerial Survey Expedition in 1956, the charted shape of the island was drastically altered and the name Cape Hooker was applied to its south-eastern point as originally described.
