Snow in Great Britain

I saw the following image in several news articles, but decided to go direct to the source to get a clearer image.  So if you click on the picture below the image will load to a resolution of  1 pixel being equal to 250 metres, courtesy of NASA/GSFC, MODIS Rapid Response.

Europe 2 on 8 January 2010 from Terra - NASA/GSFC, MODIS Rapid Response.

It is a truly amazing sight, the image is mesmerising and the fact that NASA provides this data freely to the public domain is brilliant.  Click the picture and enjoy the image!
