If you want to create your own timelapse videos from satellite imagery then NASA is obviously a great source for your imagery. Another good source is the RAMMB/CIRA Slider website. This tool allows you to create animated GIF’s from satellite imagery from GOES-16 and Himawari-8. The slider uses the latest available imagery from both satellites to allow you to create small animated movies of the Earth.
GOES-16 is in geostationary orbit over the Earth’s Western Hemisphere. It therefore provides great satellite imagery of the Americas. Himawari-8 is in geostationary orbit at 140.7 degrees East. It provides near real-time imagery of Australia, Japan and eastern China.
Currently a record number of bushfires are burning in the state of New South Wales in Australia. Smoke from these fires can clearly been seen in imagery captured by the Himawari-8 satellite. My Australian Bushfires map uses a video loop of Himawari-8 satellite imagery captured yesterday afternoon overlaid on the eastern coast of Australia.
