Satellite image of the South Island taken in winter
Click on the map to see a view of New Zealand from the International Space Station.

Satellite image taken on June 12, 2006. It shows the South Island after a huge winter storm swept across the country. Snow storms usually accompany a strong southerly wind originating from the Antarctica. The image shows clearly that the West Coast and top of the South Island are sheltered from this wind by the Southern Alps range.
