Electric Blue Swirls Off Ireland (Photo of the Day)

Though looking at Ireland from space is always stunning, with it’s masses of dark green spread across the vast majority of the island, in this image there is something even more spectacular; the electric blue plankton bloom to the south.

Captured by the European Space Agency’s Envisat satellite on 23 May, 2010, using the Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS),  the plankton bloom in the North Atlantic Ocean is quite astonishing to see in nature.
