Sunny Ireland

NASA satellite photo of Ireland taken on Monday, 26 March 2012.

This is a great photo of sunny clear Ireland, taken by NASA, click on the photo to see it bigger. Normally Ireland has at least some cloud cover, in this satellite photo we have none.

Try and spot each physical feature of Ireland, with no clouds it is easy to find the mountains, lakes and islands. You can also spot the urban areas of Dublin, Belfast, Cork and Limerick.

An interesting point on the map, notice the orange area west of Limerick City on the River Shannon, this is Aughinish (the largest alumina refinery in Europe).

26 March 2012 – A very clear day across Ireland.
28 March 2012 – Great photo of a cloudless Ireland / Different Angle
