The entire country was yesterday basking in the sun blissfully unawares we were all being snapped from above by an astronaut.

Astronauts stationed aboard the International Space Station have often tweeted images of Ireland in the past. We routinely see them popping up on St. Patrick's Day, like this one last month. 

The latest was tweeted by an Italian astronaut, Samantha Cristoforetti, who was wishing her friend in Britain a 'Happy Birthday'. 

The gorgeous image shows our country without so much as a cloud lingering above it. Also featured is Britain and a small bit of France, both of whom seemed to be enjoying the clear skies. 

Wonderful. 

And this beauty was the one from last month...
