European Satellite Records Lightning Strikes
It is great to see images and video start to come in from European Space Agency’s (ESA) Meteosat Third Generation Lightning Imager. Here is an image showing lightning strikes across Europe.
Iridian is proud to have their optical filters onboard as key wavelength selective elements in this imaging system. It will be exciting to see how data and images from the MTG-LI contributes the development of more accurate weather forecasts and the study of weather phenomena from space.
