Italy - May 8th, 2009

In this view of southern Italy, a line of clouds frames the west coast of Calabria. The shoreline becomes clear towards Sicily, making thin tan lines of beaches visible.

The coast of the Strait of Messina can be observed sharply as it is also cloud free and no sediments are present in the water.

Moving further south in Sicily, the brown flanks of Mount Etna stand out amidst the surrounding green terrain.

To the north, off the Sicilian coast in the Tyrrhenian Sea, are the Aeolian Islands (Italian: Isole Eolie).  These seven islands make up a volcanic archipelago with two active volcanoes: Stromboli and Vulcano.
