Delegation of the European Union to Australia

European Union Satellite Selfie: Tuesday 25 August, Canberra.

10/08/2020 - 07:45

Can you take a selfie from space? The European Union Delegation to Australia together with European Embassies and High Commissions in Canberra are about to find out!

To help celebrate National Science Week, the Maxar satellite will fly over the nation’s capital to capture an image of Canberra and its people from above.

The diplomatic community will get together at Canberra’s iconic Rond Terrace to present the flag of the European Union surrounded by the flags of the 27 Member States in a display that is big enough to be seen from space.  

Due to bad weather conditions, the satellite is now scheduled to flyover on Tuesday 25 August between 10-11 AM.

The initiative is presented by the Where You Are Festival with the support of the Australian Government, the ACT Government and co-hosted by Australian National University.
