NASA Satellite Takes “Extremely Rare” Cloud-Free Picture of Ireland

Here’s a belated St. Patrick’s Day present courtesy of NASA: The space agency recently took this beautiful image of the Emerald Isle using the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on its Aqua satellite. NASA says the picture is “extremely rare” because there’s not a single cloud above the island: Ireland is cloudy at least somewhere almost all of the time, and according to the Irish Meteorological Service, “the sky is entirely cloudy more than 50 percent of the time.”
