Snowy Pyrenees seen by Proba-V

In this Proba-V image, acquired on 1 January 2015, the southern part of France with the snow-capped Pyrenees Mountains is shown.

In the upper part of the image a persistent cloud field in the Garonne Valley is visible. The image resolution is 300 metres.

Proba-V is a miniaturised ESA satellite tasked with a full-scale mission: to map land cover and vegetation growth across the entire planet every two days.
