“What wouldn’t I give now for a never-changing map of the ever-constant ineffable? To possess, as it were, an atlas of clouds.”
― David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas
This is a little different, the sky seen from high above.

Today’s cloud map is the product of a project called Xplanet. According to the site, “the Xplanet project creates global cloud maps using GOES, METEOSAT, and GMS satellite imagery downloaded from the Geostationary Satellite Imagery page at Dundee University. You can use these maps to show the world with near real time clouds! ”
A snapshot of the day’s clouds around the world. Not quite what David Mitchell had in mind, but it’ll do for today.
