About this archive

Public version 3.1, released 8 October, 2021.


Earth, as seen from the VMC (visual monitoring camera) on spacecraft 3 on 5th June 2016:

The VMCs are installed in the umbilical separation connector bracket on the base of the upper spacecraft (CUS) in each Cluster pair, in order to take a series of 27 colour images of the lower spacecraft (CLS) during separation. An image of the separation is here and the other images of the Earth from June 2016 are on Flickr.
