NOAA, APT, Weather satellite images recorded at Brisbane, Australia.

Latitude: -27.500, Longitude: 153.000

Software: WXtoImg version 2.11.2 beta   

Receiver: APT-06AD

Antenna: QFH   Used in conjunction with a collinear vertical diversity antenna.

Real time satellite images are received directly from Polar Orbiting Satellites as they pass within range of Brisbane. This data is then processed from it's raw state into the images below. Brisbane is marked as a yellow cross and major cities are marked in orange.

Visit the NOAA Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellites (POES) status page for details on active satellites.

Note: Polar Orbiting Satellites have a circular orbit, with an altitude between 830 (morning orbit) and 870 (afternoon orbit) km above Earth with a velocity of over 27,100 km/h orbiting the Earth every 102 minutes. Interference can occur in the reception of the satellite images causing signal loss which will result in fragmentation, speckling and other noise inducements of the image. Trevor ARS VK4QW.   Kallangur, Brisbane weather webcam.

                                                                                 

Map Coloured IR with Precip: uses sensor 4 (thermal infrared) to create a false coloured image showing areas of likely precipitation.
The likelihood and intensity of precipitation increases as the colour goes from green to yellow to orange to red to black.
