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.
