Caption: Meteosat 1, the first in a series of European Space Agency (ESA) weather satellites. Meteosat 1 was launched on 23 November 1977 by an American Delta rocket from Capa Canaveral, Florida. It was fully operational for 2 years but continued some data-gathering functions until October 1985. Placed in geostationary orbit, it recorded images of the whole earth over Africa and Europe at three wavelengths: visible light, water vapour & thermal infrared.
