1. Antarctic White Night 2016

Himawari-8 satellite, which started its operation on July 7, 2015, has shown many scenes that humankind witnessed for the first time, and white night is one of them.

Hence we focused on the night of winter solstice 2016 and cropped the Antarctic region from the original image of Himawari-8 RGB hybrid images to create a movie. Please enjoy the fantastic scenery by the midnight sun illuminating the ground even at midnight.
