Charlie Loyd, who works with satellite imagery at Mapbox, put together a 12-second time-lapse of Earth using a day of data from Japan’s weather satellite Himawari-8. The experiment is called Glittering Blue. Derek Watkins used the data to similar effect last year, but Glittering Blue is bigger and at high resolution making it all the more mesmerizing.
