Alaska is the state that is the farthest north, east, and west. The reason Alaska can be considered the farthest both east and west is that the Aleutian Islands cross the 180-degree meridian of longitude. I remember this from school.

Kathi Taylor, Alaska's islands extend past the international date line. Any territory beyond the IDL is considered the East. As we proceed westward from there, we discover Maine, the 2nd most eastern state.

I remember visiting Lubec, Maine, which prided itself on being farthest east community in the USA. I'm not sure how Alaska qualifies for this distinction

Alaska is NOT, CAN NOT be the most Eastern State! Perhaps the author of the question meant to say "most western", or was looking at the geographical locations upside down and backwards? Back to Geography class for the author of this question...

Mike Reidy, I remember reading somewhere that the equator is closest to space. So, I chose the country closest to the equator, Ecuador. Thank you, Christine, James' wife
