Europe - August 1st, 2011

This image shows most of the Italian peninsula and Sicily, as well as parts of Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, Macedonia, Albania and Greece.

Italy is the country with less cloud cover, allowing the Apennine Mountains to be seen running down the spine of the peninsula. Also cloud free is the coast of Croatia, where several islands can be seen near the shoreline. Most of the rest of the image is dotted by clouds, with the exception of a large valley in Romania at the upper right.

    If one superimpose a vector of country or administrative boundaries, he/she can see that there is a significant part also from Bulgaria. Therefore, Bulgaria should also be tagged on this picture.
