On Aug. 4, 2015, the Spinning Enhanced Visible and Infrared Imager (SEVIRI) instrument on the MSG-4 satellite captured its first image of Earth. This demonstrates that Europe’s latest geostationary weather satellite, launched on July 15, 2015, is performing well and on its way to becoming fully operational when needed after six months of commissioning.

The European Space Agency (ESA) was responsible for the initial operations after launch of MSG-4 and handed over the satellite to EUMETSAT on July 26, 2015.
