The European Space Agency just released amazing video footage of Vancouver from the Copernicus Sentinel-2 satellite. Copernicus sits at 786 KMs above Earth in a “Low Earth Orbit”.

Watch the video below:

There is a beautiful July 2019 photo of the Fraser River discharging sediment in the Georgia Strait. You can clearly see Metro Vancouver, the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal, Point Roberts, and the north west part of Washington. You can see Gulf Islands, including Gabiola, Valdes, Galiano, Mayne Island, Thetis Island, and the northern half of Salt Spring Island.
