The Space Colony ARK is a location that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is a space station, formerly the home of Professor Gerald Robotnik, his granddaughter Maria Robotnik, Shadow the Hedgehog and other scientists.
Years before 3437 P.X.E., the ARK crashed on Mobius in the waters near Onyx Island, where it has been burning up until the present. The ARK seems to have a large hole on the side of it, which might be the cause of its crash landing.
