If you would like to be alerted to any planned or unexpected service interruptions, please subscribe to our mailing list by following the instructions in this link.

The following links provide access to real-time satellite observations of observatories world-wide. Contact me (email in footer) if I've missed a facility you'd like to see added.
Available image data: On the individual observatory pages, "latest scan" indicates the UTC timestamp of the latest full disk data frame (which is NOT the same as the time the area of interest was scanned!), "Time since scan" shows the time since the area of interest has been scanned by the satellite. This depends on the latitude of the observatory site. The satellites image the full earth from north to south in 10 scans (Himawari 8) or 20 scans (GOES16/17) executed inside the 10 minute scan time, hence sites in the southern hemisphere have less lag behind real-time than northern hemisphere sites. The "data cycle shown" field indicates the time of the currently displayed full disk data frame in the browser's local time zone.

The images automatically load to the latest available data (including the thumbnails below) - so there's no need to reload the page.
