The old girl looks pretty good! Photos like this remind us how small we really are.

Earth You are Beautiful!

This photo was taken by the European Space Agency’s new MSG-3 weather satellite. It’s new!

Launched on July 5, the MSG-3 is performing well and on its way to becoming active after six months of development. 

The satellite is spin-stabilized, meaning it can always face Earth and take high-resolution images. This first photo was taken with an instrument aboard the craft called the Spinning Enhanced Visible and Infrared Imager (SEVIRI).
These satellites help provide better weather coverage and short-range forecasts for Europe and Africa, especially in the case of rapidly developing storms or fog.
