Sentinel 2 data: satellite and sun zenith angles

Dear all,

I am currently working on MSI Sentinel 2 products. To conduct my study I would need to retrieve satellite and sun zenith angles for each S2 product. Actually, I don’t know where I could find these last, even in the metadata file. If you have any idea it would be helpful !

Thanks all,


have you checked these?

Values for Sun Zenith and Azimuth Angle (including the Mean for both) and Viewing Incidence Angles can be found in the L1C Tile metadata (MTD_TL.xml).

Thank you very much !

Really helpful, I appreciate

Note that you can use the S2 resampler module to compute proper viewing geometrie parameters for every single pixel.
but it may be quite heavy in memory usage:
