Italy, seen from space. Colour-enhanced image of Italy and the central Mediterranean Sea. The Alps are at the top of the frame, still coated with white snow. Other upland regions are seen as bright green. To the west (left) of Italy are the islands of Corsica (upper) and Sardinia. Just below centre is the island of Sicily. To the east (right) of Italy is the Adriatic Sea, on the far side of which is the former Yugoslavia - now a collection of several states. At bottom left is part of Tunisia in North Africa. The data for this image were gathered by a NOAA weather satellite.
