  1. Thank you Mary Angela Deconto on bringing insightful pictures and satellite infographic of Alpine region in Europe on behalf of ESA TV. These are valuable contribution towards space and science ✨🌠

  2. I find it interesting how hard it is to see any city from this distance.
    Is this how it really looks like or is this because of a color change or a filtering done by the satellite?

  3. There is something wrong with the audio in this video. It sounds like you captured the sound of audio interference caused by fluorescent lighting and put it in the video. It’s a really loud, bothersome electric whine. You can hear it very clearly at 2:17
