Event Horizon
Photo By Nicolas Blachut

  • Title: Event Horizon
  • State/Province/Region: Newfoundland
  • Country: Canada
  • Nearest Town: Fogo
  • Description: Sunset over Brimstone Head, Fogo Island , Newfoundland, Canada, reputed by the Flat Earth Society to be one of the four corners of the Earth Wikipedia Source : "The largest community on the island, the town may also be the location of the island's first permanent settlement, which took place in the early 18th century, though it is unknown which exact area of Fogo Island hosted the first European settlers. Some historians feel Tilting Harbour may have been the first settlement, owing to its sheltered harbour and close proximity to fishing grounds. Although some local legends say that an English settlement may have been in place at Fogo (town) as early as 1680, this is highly unlikely. James Cook surveyed the area in the 1770s, and at that time he was told that the first English settlers in the area were in Twillingate in the year 1728. Before that, French fishermen frequented the area, but never settled permanently. The town of Fogo is situated on Fogo Harbour, along the island's north shore. The town's economy is tied to the fishing industry and, from the 18th to 20th centuries, was home to several fish merchants."
