Latest infra-red satellite picture of Ireland

This is the latest infra-red image from the Meteosat satellite. I find this map very helpful in determining cloud cover, and planning for night-time observing. The latest picture is usually less than an hour old so you're seeing the cloud cover as it actually is at the moment. Latest temperatures for Europe shown below.
