This Mosaic Photograph Of Ireland Taken From Space Is Absolutely Beautiful
The colourful picture was released by the European Space Agency this morning
There have been some gorgeous pictures of Ireland taken from space posted online recently, and now we've another to enjoy.
The picture was taken by the European Space Agency's Sentinel-1 satellite, a synthetic aperture radar which relays continuous imagery back to Earth.
This morning the ESA EarthObservation Twitter account shared this beautiful picture, colouring the country to reflect its natural features: mostly green to represent our vast grasslands, coastal fringes comprised of granite are coloured orange, while boggy lowland areas take on a darker hue.
Take a look at it below.
