The visualisation, comprised of imagery from the geostationary satellites of EUMETSAT, NOAA and the JMA, shows an entire year of weather across the globe during 2013, with commentary from Mark Higgins, Training Officer at EUMETSAT.

Seasonal changes on the ground are also visible, such as snow in the Northern Hemisphere melting away during summer months to show green vegetation.
