Earth from Space: Mississippi Swampland

This Sentinel-2A 'colour vision' image captures part of the Mississippi swamps on the east and west banks of the Mississippi River, south of New Orleans and north of the Mississippi Delta.

The ESA-developed Sentinel satellite Sentinel-2A was launched today, adding a high-resolution optical imaging capability to the European Union Copernicus environmental monitoring system.

Sentinel-2A will soon be launched from Europe's Spaceport in French Guiana on top of a Vega launcher, making it the second satellite in orbit for Europe's Copernicus programme.

For the launch of Sentinel-2A, ESA is inviting you to take part in a photo contest focusing on the theme of 'colour vision'. Enter for a chance to win a trip to ESA's operations centre for the satellite's launch event.
