Sicily and Aeolian Islands, Italy - May 30th, 2009

Patchy clouds dot the skies over most of Sicily; the only area completely obscured by cloud-cover is the eastern flank of Mount Etna. The Strait of Messina and much of the Sicilian coastline, can be seen quite clearly.

The arch of the Aeolian Islands, also known as the Lipari Islands, is visible in the Tyrrhenian Sea above Sicily. This volcanic archipelago includes the islands of Lipari, Vulcano, Salina, Stromboli, Filicudi, Alicudi, Panarea and Basiluzzo.
