In preparation for the start on 9 February of the 2018 Winter Olympics, ESA took it’s Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission over the host city Pyeongchang, South Korea. About 180 km South-East of Seoul, Pyeongchang is nestled in the Taebaek Mountains. Taken on 30 January, the images shown in the animation show the sites of several events, as well as the Olympic Stadium itself.
Alright, that footage might tire a bit soon, so check out the on-the-ground stuff below!
