United Kingdom - May 25th, 2012


Smoke or haze can be observed over the Irish Sea (center), Celtic Sea (lower left quadrant) and English Channel (lower right quadrant). The skies over the United Kingdom and Ireland, however, are mostly clear, offering an unusually clean look at the area. Visible in the full image and the close-up is an elongated phytoplankton bloom in the Atlantic to the west of Ireland.
