First MSG-2 Earth Image

January 29, 2006

This first MSG-2 satellite color image of the Earth was acquired on January 25.

The second Meteosat Second Generation satellite, developed on behalf of EUMETSAT under the aegis of the European Space Agency, was launched from the Guiana Space Centre, Europe's spaceport, in Kourou, French Guiana, on December 21, 2005.

Once operational, MSG-2 will secure the high availability and reliability of the Meteosat Second Generation System.
