Watch Earth from day to night, from Japan’s Himawari-8 satellite, that every day captures imagery of the western Pacific, Australia, and parts of Asia, Antarctica & Alaska…
The satellite is in stationary orbit over New Guinea where it captures some truly amazing imagery of the Earth.
Glittering Blue is a video of Himawari 8’s imagery from just one day. The video shows 24 hours of imagery from August 3rd 2015 in 12 seconds. What makes Glittering Blue stand out is its sheer size, which really showcases the amazing quality of Himawari-8’s imagery.
In the center of the video you can see the whirling Typhoon Soudelor, a category 5 super-typhoon.
