France’s Mont-Saint-Michel island and commune as seen from the Pléiades satellite.
A birds-eye view of France’s Mont-Saint-Michel comes courtesy of the Pléiades satellite, which snapped the island on May 3.
Until the end of the 19th century, no bridge spanned the expanse between Mont-Saint-Michel and the mainland, so the tiny islet was accessible only at low tide.
The image, recently released by the European Space Agency, shows where water meets mud flats, with multiple channels interwoven into the mud.
