Europe’s newest weather satellite has just beamed back its first images of our planet, and they don’t disappoint. The Meteosat Third Generation Imager has revealed incredibly detailed views of Europe, Africa and the Atlantic Ocean. The satellite was a joint project by the European Space Agency (ESA) and Eumetsat and was launched in December 2022.
The image was captured by the satellite’s Flexible Combined Imager on March 18, 2023. It shows much of Northern and Western Europe and Scandinavia blanketed in clouds, with relatively clear skies over Italy and the Western Balkans.
