"Glittering Blue" which can see the movement of the sun and the typhoon with null saku with the high definition image of Sunflower No. 8 is amazing
Meteorological satellites equipped with cameras with significantly improved performanceSunflower No. 8"It is possible to capture the state of the earth very precisely,A strange slimy moving typhoonWe began to show the figure of the Earth's surface changing like living. A time lapse video that connects the videos captured by Himawari 8 like this and can see the flow of the day at a speed of 7200 times,Glittering BlueIt is open to the public.
When opening the above site, it seems that such an arched indication will come out at first and think that "that?", But if you shrink the page with a thought ......
Such a figure of the earth was displayed. The figure of the Japanese archipelago is visible in the upper part of the center of the screen. The following images are still images, but on actual sites you can see the cloud moves as slimy and the day and night are swapped at a tremendous pace.
This image is made by time-lapse movies of high-definition and high-frequency images taken by MTSAT-1R. This is a 12-second cycle that seems to be played at a speed that one day passes.
Looking at the situation in this order it looks like this. In the darkness in the dark, the direction of the east becomes brighter in a crescent shape, and the sun gradually opens. Sunlight reflected on the sea surface and shines in orange color is very beautiful.
The surface brightens as it is from the east to the west, and the part where Japan is located is also in the daytime. The figure of a typhoon can be seen off the coast of south of Japan. This image was taken on the 5th of August 2015 and the typhoon reflectedTyphoon No. 13It is said that.
The sun goes to the west as it is, Japan is almost at noon to evening time. Impressive figure of the Australian Continent shining red in the Southern Hemisphere. And the Australian continent, the big deer.
Soon the Asian region including Japan is in the state of night. I think some people think that "the night view of the city can not be seen", but the camera of Sunflower No. 8 has been adjusted to shoot the state of the daytime, it is made to photograph the night scenery Since it is not, it seems that it is impossible to shoot very dark light such as the light of a building.
This site was made specialized in satellite image analysisCharlie LoydMr. is. Loyd seems to have produced this content as part of a weekend hobby.
The image can be enlarged or reduced by changing the display scale of the browser. It is like this when the Japanese part is up. Most of the Japanese archipelago is clear but the area from Tohoku to Hokkaido seems to be covered with clouds.
Typhoon No. 13 is up. This image is the state where the sun is located east (in the image on the left) against the typhoon, so the shadow of the cloud shows the irregularities very well. It is truly amazing to be able to see images of this level in motion.
Up around the East China Sea and the Indochinese Peninsula. The sun is reflected on the sea surface off Vietnam and it is brightly shining. In the image, you can see how the sun shining on the sea surface moves from the east to the west as well.
Sunday rising in the Pacific Ocean. When I look at the earth level, it is an image that makes me feel blissfully that clouds are floating such a low place.
Like the hands of clouds swirling toward the typhoon.
It is quite interesting to see the clouds in the Antarctic. I witness how the whirlpool winds like a big undulation.
The state of the Arctic Circle may be relatively familiar. The flow of clouds and air moving as if to follow the determined route is never tired even if you are looking all the way.
In this way, "Glittering Blue" shows us to take one day of interesting Earth. When I looked at it while feeling the scale of the earth, it was supposed to be an image that could be seen forever.
