Highlights from the Sentinel-6 launch

Relive key moments of the launch of the Copernicus Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite. The spacecraft lifted off on 21 November on a Falcon 9 rocket from the Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, US.

The satellite will continue the long-term record of reference measurements, extending the record of sea-level height into a fourth decade. Orbiting at an altitude of over 1300 km and reaching 66°N and 66°S, Sentinel-6 provides measurements to map the height of the sea surface over 95% of the world’s ice-free oceans every 10 days.

While Sentinel-6 is one of the European Union’s family of Copernicus missions, its implementation is the result of a unique cooperation between the European Commission ESA, Eumetsat, NASA and NOAA, with contribution from the CNES French space agency.

Lunar Eclipse Perspectives : Do we all see the same Moon? Yes, but we all see it differently. One difference is the apparent location of the Moon against background stars – an effect known as parallax. We humans use the parallax between our eyes to judge depth. To see lunar parallax, though, we need eyes placed at a much greater separations – hundreds to thousands of kilometers apart. Another difference is that observers around the Earth all see a slightly different face of our spherical Moon – an effect known as libration. The featured image is a composite of many views across the Earth, as submitted to APOD, of the total lunar eclipse of 2019 January 21. These images are projected against the same background stars to illustrate both effects. The accurate superposition of these images was made possible by a serendipitous meteorite impact on the Moon during the lunar eclipse, labeled here L1-21J – guaranteeing that these submitted images were all taken within a split second. via NASA
