The first Meteosat Third Generation (MTG) geostationary weather satellite – observing clouds and lightning like never before MTG is one of the most complex and innovative meteorological geostationary satellite systems ever built. The complete constellation consists of three satellites: two imaging satellites (MTG-I) and one sounding satellite (MTG-S). The first MTG-I satellite was launched on 13 December 2022 and it carries two instruments. The Lightning Imager (LI) is the first space-borne lightning detector for Europe and Africa. The Flexible Combined Imager (FCI) is a continuity mission that provides state-of-the-art data over Europe and Africa for forecasting severe weather, and for near real-time monitoring of clouds, atmosphere, land surfaces and oceans. The presentation will give an overview of the two instruments, followed by first fascinating cloud and lightning images and videos over Europe and Africa in summer 2023. Sven-Erik Enno is a Remote Sensing Scientist at the European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT), Darmstadt, Germany, working on the Lightning Imager Cal/Val and science activities.
