This site is a listing of satellite images
and movies taken by weather satellites around the globe. I have links
to satellite pictures at other sites that are well known around the
weather community and links to those that are practically unknown.
Some of the pictures, especially those in visible light, offer stunning
views of the Earth.
Looking at weather satellite images gives you a chance
to see weather events on a large scale. One can see the development of
hurricanes, large frontal systems, the daily cycles of thunderstorms,
and the repetitive weather patterns that cover many parts of the
globe. Different images have different purposes, and some are easier
to understand than others, but they all have important information
about the world's weather.
Quick Satellite Images - a very small sampling of images
These images are only eight of the thousands of
images on the page. They just happen to be the ones I look at most
often, and I think they may also be the most useful to others.
Disclaimer: The images on these pages should
not be used for making weather forecasts
on which the protection of life, health, property, or anything else important
depends. They are for hobbyist use only. Always consult
official sources of weather information.
