Where is Christmas Island Located on the World Map?

Where is the Christmas Island located on the map of the world?
I always heard about the Easter Island but never about the Christmas Island. I didn't even know it existed.
A satellite from NASA fell in near that location and I want to know where that place is located.
I asked my parents and they have no idea, they just told me Christmas Island is not inside of the US territory. Where is Christmas Island then?

The Christmas Island is located near Australia in the Indian Ocean. The island is often referred to as the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean.
In the world map, it's located at the top left of the Australian continent.
Christmas Island is one of the world's significant seabird islands, with thousands of seabirds such as the endangered Abbott's booby.
They are called like that because they were discovered in December 25, 1643 by English men.
After its discovery, Christmas Island was annexed and settlement was begun by the UK in 1888.
