After a long hiatus this year (my software trials ran out and I could not afford to renew them) following a generous Christmas donation I have the excellent Metop Manager up and running and am pulling down GBs of images every day once more!

Below, an image of the UK from this morning. After the (very!) cold night, the population centres stand out clearly in this combined Vis/IR False colour image.

As usual, click on image to enlarge.
