The municipality of Uruapan and its surrounding volcanoes in western central Mexico are featured in this Proba image. Uruapan’s international airport landing strip is seen in the image as well as the foothills of the Cerro la Cruz peak (upper right hand corner). ESA’s Proba satellite, which celebrates its five-year anniversary in space on 22 October 2006, acquired this image on 15 February 2006 with its Compact High Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (CHRIS), designed to acquire hyperspectral images with a spatial resolution of 17 metres across an area of 13 kilometres.
