IN THE PAST, we’ve posted some incredible views of Earth’s most breathtaking natural features from the European Space Agency (ESA), which has been observing the Earth with satellites for decades.

It turns out that natural features aren’t the only thing that the ESA has seen from space — they’ve turned their lenses on some of Earth’s most iconic cities as well.

The ESA has launched some of the most advanced Earth-observation satellites ever, including the Envistat, which circled the Earth from 2002 until 2012.

Every week, the ESA releases a new image — plucked from the huge pool of Envistat and other satellite images — on their website.
