Snowy Britain As Seen From Space Via Nasa's Terra Satellite (PICTURE)

By now we're all familiar with how the snow looked from down here on Earth - so take a look at Britain in the white stuff - as seen from space.

This stunning shot was taken by the Terra satellite on Nasa's Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on January 26.

Pretty, isn't it?
