Scandinavia, from space. Coloured satellite view of Scandinavia and northern Europe. The colours approximate to natural tones. At the centre of the frame is the Baltic Sea. To the east (right) is Finland, to the west is Sweden. The far left edge of Scandinavia is Norway, with many high snow- topped mountains. The west end of the Baltic Sea is almost closed by the peninsula and islands of Denmark. On the south-east coast of the Baltic are the three states of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, once part of the former USSR. The right edge of the frame is in Russia. The data for this image were gathered by various NOAA weather satellites.
