Polar-Orbiting Satellite
  • All maps are to be used solely for displaying meteorological/geophysical information, and not for any other purpose. All maps are not to scale and for illustrative purpose only.
  • These satellite images are processed from the polar-orbiting satellites operated by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA TERRA and AQUA).
  • Daytime satellite images from NASA TERRA are usually available in the morning between 0300 and 0430 UTC, while images from NASA AQUA and NOAA-19, Suomi-NPP and NOAA-20 are made available in the afternoon between 0700 and 0900 UTC.
  • The path of each satellite orbit over the region is slightly different each day due to the earth’s rotation. As such, the satellite images on some days are only partial images.
