Satellites from NASA capture images of Scotland in the snow from space

NASA is one of the world’s biggest agencies when it comes to matters regarding SPACE ventures. However, in the recent incident, the images are unique and exciting. The pictures indicate snowy Scotland from space. The photos are cloud-free which a rare occurrence in the space industry is. It shows the country at its best with a sunny date regardless of the low temperature. Not to mention, there is deep snow in different parts of the country. In recent times in Scotland, it is clear that the country is covered in snow. And experts are talking about cases of further extreme low temperatures in the coming days.

The freezing temperatures are a bit off since the country recorded such readings in 2010 January. Recently, temperatures fell to -17.1C in the Scottish Highlands with a mercury drop of up to -22.3C. From the images from NASA satellite, Orkney, Shetland, and more of the N.E. have full snow coverage. After a few studies, experts concluded that the country’s broad areas are likely to deal with low temperatures overnight on Wednesday. Other than Scotland, these freezing temperatures will affect the whole of the U.K.

For the east coast region in Scotland, things are different as people enjoy sunny weather. Also, there is no snow in the area. This incident is not the first where surveillance in the International Space has captured Scotland in its images. In 2018, an astronaut working in the International Space Station was able to capture clear shots of the country.

A Nikon D5 Digital Camera took these images. And it shows the beauty of Scotland with the Scottish landscape. According to NASA, these occurrences are common, explaining why the region prevents landscape photography from space during the winter months. The pictures also capture the snow-shaped mountains that are north of Glen Mor. Not to mention a 62-mile valley that runs between the Inverness and Fort William.

Experts, especially geographers, claim that the landscape came to be hundreds of million years ago due to geological forces. Glen Mor is famous in Scotland and entire Europe since many believe it holds the oldest rocks on the continent. Not to mention, it has a unique surrounding of elongated lakes, including Loch Ness.

According to NASA experts, the Scottish Highlands landscape indicates signs of reshaping thanks to the flowing glaciers during the recent ice ages. That is about 2.5 million years ago. In 2016, Jeff Williams, an astronaut from the U.S., was also able to capture Scotland. Via his Twitter account, he went ahead to explain how exemplary and clear the view was for all to see. The Met Office gave warnings regarding the weather, especially the snow and freezing temperatures in Scotland.
