Timelapse Of Planet Earth In Infrared Light Shows The Fluid Motion Of Water Vapor In The Atmosphere


This timelapse video presents planet Earth in infrared light!

Look at the fluid motion of water vapor in the atmosphere… It is eerie!

The video is based on photos taken by two geostationary satellites in the period between November 30, 2014 and January 26, 2015. The resulting video is mindblowing!

At 2:30 you even see the effects of the day-night cycle on atmospheric fluids, with pulses of clouds bursting out in the sky. The way the daytime sun causes clouds to form is spectacular!

Earth in infrared

As explained by NASA:

[quote_box_center]This animation was produced from images taken by the geostationary GOES 13 and GOES 15 satellites. The images are from the IR3 channel, which is sensitive to wavelengths of 6.5 um. 700 frames with a resolution of 3600×3000 were downloaded from each satellite over a period from November 30th, 2014, to January 26th, 2015. The frames were processed to remove image artifacts, played at 7fps and interpolated by a factor of four. The resulting animation plays at a speed of 21 hours/second.[/quote_box_center]

Now watch you in ultraviolet!
