Can you spot @esa’s Kiruna ground station in this @CopernicusEU #Sentinel2 image?
It is hard to spot, but is located in the centre-right of the image, just above a dark lake. The station is used to communicate with #EO satellites, including the recently launched #Sentinel6.

Will iceberg #A68 A hit #SouthGergia Island?
We at @esa_eo are on #berwatch but it's still too soon to tell.
New images from @CopernicusEU #Sentinel1 show the berg is rotating and potentially drifting westwards.

We are feeling a bit sentimental after the launch of @CopernicusEU #Sentinel6 last Saturday... so we went back and looked at the first ever Sentinel launch!
#Sentinel1 A lifted off on a Soyuz launcher from Europe’s Spaceport at 21:02 GMT on 3 April 2014.
