Interesting view of the nuclear facility in Russia, thought to be responsible for a recent radiation leak, by the satellites. Storage building appears to have lost part of its roof sometime between late-Aug and mid-Sept (middle of pics)

Sure that's not just shadow, due to lower sun angle? You can see same thing in the hedge lines.

Especially because there is still no explanation for the ruthenium radiation spike in Chelyabinsk region.

They seem to have done some type of construction work (Earth next to building is also disturbed), it started in July and ended in September. Might or might not be related to the radiation incident. Full-size GIF:

It's a scandal that there is still no information about the accident which caused the leak.

Since some people asked me for the stills, I uploaded the images used in the animation and made an album on Flickr

On Sentinel selection there is nothing between Sept 24-25? The accident happened on 25th. At least picture from 27th is available.

Planet Labs have a Sep 25th image, but it's not great quality, seems like it was a cloudy day
