2. Weather Satellite 'Himawari' Clipping

Himawari-8 / Himawari-9 hybrid color images can be clipped for any parts of images, and can be shared in the gallery with a title. A rectangle on the left side of the image should be clicked to draw the clipping area by the rectangle. The scroll bar on the image can change the time for a few days before and after the day. When you would like to change the date more, you can use the calendar appearing in the right-most box.

The clipped images can be exhibited at Weather Satellite 'Himawari' Gallery or be shared on social networking services (SNS). For example, you can see Digital Typhoon at Pinterest.
