Global Composite from 7 Geo-Stationary Satellites

Local and UTC Time

The imagery below is received and processed, autonomously, on my servers and uploaded to this site by my station twice daily. This is done, because, at any one time half the globe is in darkness. I have chosen to upload the imagery every day at 0900 UTC, 1800 UTC, and 1930 UTC for the Planet Wide Image. (This helps conserve bandwidth and storage)

The imagery is created with this method that I use

NOTE: Since I am relying on imagery from other stations, there MAY be gaps in coverage which will be clearly apparent on the imagery.

The Imagery that I use comes from 7 separate Geo Stationary satellites:

  • GOES 16 Received by my station
  • GOES 18 Received by my station
  • Himawari 9 Received by my station
  • GOES 15 (EWS-G2) is received by USSF
  • METEOSAT-9 is received by the University of Twente
  • GK2A is received by Cheon Gil Nam
  • ElectroL2 is received by Роскосмос

This is the global composite created at the time of reception.
This image is created the same way as the above imagery, however, I changed the GOES 16 perspective to be from a farther vantage point. The star positions are accurate and use the Yale Star Catalog for the data source. The Satellites orbiting the earth are selected Low Earth Orbit weather satellites, and the position is accurate as to the time of satellite capture.
