Launched on 5 July, Meteosat-10 is the latest satellite in the Meteosat Second Generation (MSG) series, which provides operational weather and climate monitoring services over Europe and Africa.

In April 2013, Meteosat-9 will take over the Rapid Scanning Service (RSS) from Meteosat-8, the first MSG satellite launched in 2002. Meteosat-9 and -10 will then form the operational two-satellite configuration, with Meteosat-10 providing full disc imagery of the European and African continents and adjacent seas every 15 minutes and Meteosat-9 delivering more frequent images every five minutes (RSS) over Europe and North Africa.

This is the first operational image taken by Meteosat-10 which has replaced Meteosat-9 as EUMETSAT’s prime operational geostationary weather satellite after being moved to 0º. (Credit: EUMETSAT)
