Be even more Pacific

More big, lovely GIFfage follows the jump.

Earth from Himawari-8

Animation compiled by Earl Green. But wait, there’s more!

Earth from DSCOVR

I’m not totally happy with the interpolated frame tweening on this second one. Himawari images are taken every 10 minutes – yes, literally every 10 minutes – making for very, very smooth animation. DSCOVR’s EPIC camera images are not taken at such a regular interval, so I have to get the software to “tween” frames to avoid an even faster, more juddery stop-motion animation.
