In early February 2012, much of Europe shivered under the effects of a “Russian Winter” - intense cold and snow triggered by a strong Siberian anticyclone which hovered over northern Russia. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this true-color image of the snowy landscape of France and the United Kingdom on February 11, 2012.
