This WorldView-2 image was taken on 4 January 2013 over central Athens, the capital and largest city of Greece.
Near the centre of the image is the famous Acropolis of Athens - standing high about the surrounding city as evident by the shadow to the north. Nearby to the southeast is the Temple of Zeus, with shadows from the remaining standing columns stretching across the grass. Further northeast are the National Gardens surrounding the Zappeion building. At the upper left corner of the gardens is the Greek parliament building overlooking Syntagma Square. In the lower-right corner we can see the large, white marble Panathenaic Stadium.
