The English Channel from space
Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency features the English Channel from space, as it appears from the Copernicus Sentinel-1 mission.
Hundreds of radar images captured between 2016 and 2018 have been compressed into a single image to show the extent of busy maritime traffic passing through.
The English Channel connects the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea, which makes it very busy with traffic moving from east to west.
In fact, there is so much traffic across the region that a two-lane design has been implemented to avoid crashes.
