It is part of a "marble" - at least something nicknamed a marble.

Oh - you tried to cheat looking at the name on the picture - it is an old trick and it is real difficult to teach me how to suck eggs; I wrote the book!

OK - another hint you unimaginative terrapin. Think IBM and nicknames. One must use their intellect to properly fathom this "what is it?"

Capiche?

(I believe you banger snappers spell it "capisce.")

C4 was on the right track - once.

Quite close - close enough to earn the bragging rights on the correct answer - It is sea ice in the Sea of Okhotsk Off of Hokkaido, Japan. It is a rather unusual type of ice.

and I have uploaded the picture to Photobucket as I do not know how long this satellite image will be on geology.com. Link - http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e111/geezer69/sea-of-okhotsk-ice.jpg (original Picture by NASA.)

Looks like a satellite photo of something. The white bits could be small cumulus formed from evapo-transpiration of the vegetation underneath.
