The Atlantic Ocean in Images
An Image a day keeps the doctor away
This is one of the first images taken by the Brazilian Amazonia-1 satellite, which was developed by the Brazilian National Institute for Space Research (INPE) and successfully launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota, India, on February 28, 2021, together with other 18 co-passenger satellites onboard of the launching vehicule PSLV-C51. In the image, acquired on March 3, 2021, we can see the sprawling megacity of Sao Paulo in the left side and, just below, the coastal city of Santos (Google maps).
