Geostationary Satellite
  • These satellite images are processed from the Himawari-8 geostationary satellite operated by the Japan Meteorological Agency.
  • Each image is created from a combination of selected infrared and visible spectral bands of Himawari-8 data. For the non-sunlit areas of the image, a greyscale thermal infrared imagery is used. The resulting true-colour image closely resembles a visible colour photograph.
