Viewing Real-Time Satellite Imagery

You can now view and download near real-time full-resolution satellite imagery from NOAA's National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service. At NOAA's Imagery & Data website you can view a number of interactive maps which provide you with access to satellite imagery of Earth taken in the last 24 hours.

The Western Hemisphere map allows you to view the latest 24 hour satellite imagery of the Western Hemisphere, while the Global Archive map allows you to view satellite imagery of the whole Earth. Both these maps include a timeline feature which allows you to see the latest satellite imagery animated on top of an interactive map.

As well as these two maps which allow you to view and download NOAA's latest satellite imagery, the Imagery & Data website includes NOAA's Image of the Day. This feature provides a close-up view of some of the latest significant weather and environmental events taking place around the world. The website also provides a link to NOAA's Historic Events, which looks at satellite imagery of historic storms, floods, fires, and other global events.
