The Sentinel-2A satellite takes us over Patagonia, a wild region at the southern tip of South America on the border between Chile and Argentina. 
The arm of water on the right of the image is part of the Strait of Magellan, named after the famous Portuguese explorer, Ferdinand Magellan, who discovered this natural passage during the first circumnavigation of the globe (1519–1522). Magellan's boats came from the Atlantic Ocean, passed through these narrow and treacherous waters and reached a “peaceful sea”, our modern “Pacific Ocean”. At the centre of the image is the Brunswick Peninsula, with the Strait of Magellan on the right and two large inland sounds on the left: Seno Otway in the southwest and Seno Skyring, partially covered by clouds, in the northwest. The two lakes at the centre of Brunswick Peninsula are Laguna Cabeza de Mar (blue, on the right) and Laguna del Toro (green, on the left). The biggest island in the strait, 3.5 km east of the narrowest part of Brunswick Peninsula is Isabel Island, the first place in Patagonia where sheepherding was practiced at large-scale. To the east and southeast of Isabel Island we find two littler islands, Marta Island (in the north) and Magdalena Island (in the south). Both islands have an interesting ecosystem including sea elephants and many species of sea birds. Most notably, Magdalena Island is home to a large colony of “Magellan penguins”. In 1982, Chile instituted "Los Pingüinos Natural Monument" to preserve the ecosystems of both Magdalena and Marta islands.

In this false colour image from 20 August 2015, Sentinel-2A brings us to Utah’s Salt Lake City and surroundings. 
Utah’s capital in the United States, Salt Lake City, sits at 1300 m, bordered by the waters of the Great Salt Lake and the peaks of the Wasatch Range, which rise over 1.6 km above the Salt Lake valley floor. 
The Great Salt Lake, partly visible on the left side of the image, is the largest salt-water lake in the Western Hemisphere. Owing to its shallowness, its size shifts substantially. The lighter blue areas denote solar evaporation ponds at the edges of the lake, which produce salts and brine. 
The lake contributes an estimated $1.3 billion annually to Utah's economy, comprising the harvesting of brine shrimp, industry in mineral extraction, and recreation. 
Although it has been referred to as "America's Dead Sea”, the lake provides habitat for millions of native birds, brine shrimp, shorebirds and waterfowl. 
The mountains and several parks appear in varying shades of red, owing to this false-colour band combination. The scattered greys and whites visible along the centre of the image are the City of Salt Lake, home to some 190 000 people and to important mining operations in its surroundings, which produce copper, gold, platinum, silver, lead, and zinc among others, along with various salts from the lake.

Not your average gas station ⛽️⠀

This is how Sentinel-2B has been fueled at Europe's spaceport in French Guiana. It is an extremely hazardous and delicate task, where special protective suits have to be worn.⠀

Sentinel-2B is set for launch from French Guiana on 7 March 2017 at 01:49 GMT.⠀

Sentinel-2A takes us over of Marrakesh (or Marrakech) in Morocco, Northern Africa. 
Marrakesh is not Morocco’s capital (that’s Rabat), nor the country’s largest city (that’s Casablanca). It’s not even the oldest Moroccan city (that’s Fes). Nevertheless, Marrakech is the unofficial cultural centre of Morocco and its Medina is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 
Marrakech is also called the Red City, because of the shade of the walls surrounding its old town district.

It's a real hurricane. Like thunderclouds and lightning strikes swept the Ar-Rutba District in Iraq.
It is not surprising that the picture causes such associations. This is a real battlefield, on which war continues to this day.

⚡And what comes to your mind when you see this picture?

From the Salar de Atacama salt flat in the east to the Cordillera Domeyko mountains in the west,  Sentinel-2 takes us over part of the Atacama Desert in northern Chile. 
The desert runs along part of South America’s central west coast. It is considered one of the driest places on Earth. Being a ‘coastal desert’, the cold, upwelling waters in the Pacific Ocean inhibit rain from reaching the land. Instead, the winds that blow from the ocean bring fog. 
Because of the Atacama plateau’s high altitude, low cloud cover and lack of light pollution, it is one of the best places in the world to conduct astronomical observations and home to two major observatories. 
Some areas of the desert have been compared to the planet Mars, and have been used as a location for filming scenes set on the red planet. ESA has even tested a self-steering rover in the Atacama, which was selected for its similarities to martian conditions. 
In the lower right, the geometric shapes of large evaporation ponds dominate the Salar de Atacama – Chile’s largest salt flat. At about 3000 sq km, it is the world’s third largest salt flat as well as one of the largest active sources of lithium. From evaporation ponds like the ones pictured here, lithium bicarbonate is isolated from salt brine. Lithium is used in the manufacturing of batteries, and the increasing demand has significantly increased its value in recent years – especially for the production of electric-car batteries.

Tänään #suomi100 -avaruuskuvassa Suomenlahdella olevat #Suursaari sekä pienemmät #Tytärsaari ja Pieni Tytärsaari. Nykyisin saaret kuuluvat Venäjälle. Kuvan otti #Sentinel2 viime elokuun 3. päivänä.

Geology from space = mesmerizing patterns 👌🏼. This here’s a beautifully exposed anticline structure in the Bighorn Basin, Wyoming, USA captured with the European Space Agency‘s Sentinel-2 satellite. 🏜🛰
_
Anticlines form where sedimentary rocks (originally deposited as flat layers) are compressed and fold into n-shaped structures, often pushed up as ridges. As erosion happens, such as from the river slicing right through the middle of the mountain, the layers are exposed. Along the middle of the ridge we have Mississippian (~350 million year old) rocks, as we move away from the ridge left or right the ages get younger (stratigraphically higher layers). The nice red layer encircling the ridge is Triassic sandstone. We see these ~230 million year old red sandstones in many locations around the world probably because of high oxygen levels in the atmosphere at that time, which caused more oxidation (rusting) of the iron rich rocks. ⚒
_
I used to drive by this ridge when I lived for a summer in Wyoming and was always fascinated by it from ground level, much less from high above. Thanks ESA for the wonderful, free Sentinel constellation. 🛰

This false-colour Sentinel-2A image captured on 20 August 2015 takes us to the city of Yuma in the United States, in southwestern Arizona. 
Visible in the image in scattered greys, Yuma is home to some 90 000 people. Situated along the Colorado River, the Mexican frontier lies just west of it and California lies to the north. 
The fence forming the border is visible as a fine and perfectly straight line, running from left to right through the image between the irrigation canal and the irrigated fields west of the city. Just north of the canal, a small square marks a water reservoir for irrigating the fields in this highly arid region. 
Founded in 1854, Yuma is the centre of large irrigation districts that converted parts of the desert into rich farmland. 
It is considered to be the winter vegetable capital of the US because it has some of the most fertile soil in the country, stemming from sediments deposited by the Colorado River over thousands of years. These lay the foundation for making it the third most productive in the entire US for vegetables. It is also known for wheat – two thirds is exported, mainly to Italy for producing premium pasta. 
The false-colour bands render the farmed fields in varying shades of browns and red. The circular features are created by centre-pivot irrigation, while rectangular fields use different irrigation methods that deliver the water along straight lines. 
Also visible in the image are the Yuma International Airport just south of town, and parts of the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge to the east, which protects the desert bighorn sheep, while offering hiking and camping in the rugged wilderness.
