The ESA using a Commons image without licensing/attribution?

Elias Friedman
Today's historical change detection article on the ESA site includes a darn
familiar looking image of the Øresund Bridge.

https://earth.esa.int/web/earth-watching/image-of-the-week/content/-/article/copenhagen-denmark-landsat

Compare to:

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:%C3%96resundsbron.jpg

For that matter, the very text on their webpage looks darned familiar too
when it's compared to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%98resund_Bridge

Elias, it seems like ESA stripped the metadata, but it's clearly the same
photo.

Can you notify User:Henry von Platen
<https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Henry_von_Platen> who is the
original author?

This is not exactly a foundation or project problem, but he should be aware
they failed to credit him when they borrowed it (license is CC attribution
share-alike).
