Himawari 8 Animation

Post by Matth »

This skin displays images downloaded from the Himawari-8 satelite and shows an animation of the last 24 hours.

It downloads an image every 10 minutes and saves them locally on the disk, so it will take a day until you see the full days animation. You can choose from any of the 16 types that are available.

I would not have been able to do that without the patient and tremendous help from balala.

Updated!

Updated the Skin to now also include satellite images closer up from East Asia/South China and the Guangdong Coast (Hong Kong).

You can also show the current Moon Phase.

You might have to reload the skin once after the first load to make sure it's initialized properly.
