If Ireland was made completely of fluffy white clouds it would look exactly like this

We’re being watched from above right now.

AS THE COUNTRY stares longingly at the sky treating every patch of blue sky like the arrival of the annual Leaving Cert weather, the true picture has been sent to us from above.

About 400km up actually.

Italian astronaut Sam Cristoforetti is one of six aboard the International Space Station’s (ISS) current mission.

This morning she tweeted a pretty fascinating picture of Ireland covered completely with white clouds.

The clouds hug the coastline so closely it almost looks like a rather fluffy-looking alternative map of the country.

Now, if only they’d all blow away that’d be even better.
