Moody Island is an ice-covered island 19 kilometres (10 nmi) long, between Kizer Island and Steventon Island in the Sulzberger Ice Shelf, Marie Byrd Land, Antarctica. It was mapped from surveys by the United States Geological Survey and from U.S. Navy air photos (1959–65), and was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names for E.L. Moody, a dog-driver with the Byrd Antarctic Expedition (1933–35).[1]
