France from space on a clear day •

Last update: October 16th, 2019 at 10:05 am

Today’s Image of the Day comes thanks to the European Space Agency (ESA) and features a look at France from space on a cloudless day.

The image was captured by the Copernicus Sentinel-3 satellite and includes the snow-capped Alps to the right and the Pyrenees mountains at the bottom.

While much of the land is occupied by farms, the bustling city of Paris sits just above the center of the image.
