Himawari Satellite's Earth Images

This page contains a Javascript snippet to dynamically load photos taken from Japan's Himawari 8 Satellite. The data comes from http://himawari8.nict.go.jp/ and is updated every 10 minutes, with a 1-hour delay.

Detailed information and implementation can be found at /en/article/modify-website/php-javascript-satellite-earth-picture.lantian.

The images are processed and converted to WebP on my server to speed up loading. A Javascript library is used to convert images locally if the browser doesn't support WebP, like older Firefox or IE, and it's normal for the conversion to take a few seconds.

Loading, may take some time...
