Only tangentially related but I'd like to share it as space nerds (like me) may love it:

This is a small mac app getting real time satellite images, and using it as your wallpaper. One of the source is Jaxa's Himawari-8, hence the link.

Also, the podcasts from Anthony Colangelo (same page) are pretty good to keep up with the space industry






There is also desktop earth for non Mac users: http://www.anka.me/desktopearth.aspx

As GOES covers the US Coasts, and Himawari-8 Japan/East Asia/Australia, do you know of any geostationary satellites over Europe, from which the live images are available?


This is really cool. Thanks for creating it and sharing it. Already installed :)
