This isn't exactly a story that is torn from MLM scripts, but it's just too big and awesome to put this in The Donut Hole.

Japans New Satellite, Earth Every 10 Min, 22K mi, 7-2015

Image of Earth Every 10 Minutes

By DEREK WATKINS JULY 10, 2015

A sense of perspective is unavoidable from 22,000 miles out. Looking down at Earth from that distance almost three times farther than the diameter of the planet itself allows a view of the globe as a massive organic system, pulsing with continuous movement. Below, images from the Himawari-8 weather satellite's first official day paint a living portrait of the western Pacific, with Typhoons Chan-hom and Nangka spinning slowly westward.

Locked into a stationary orbit above New Guinea, the satellite takes 144 photographs of the entire planet a day, three times as many as its predecessor. The images show how weather systems evolve and help forecasters develop more nuanced models of Earths atmosphere.

Found the video on Youtube but it won't display here. It may not display here because I received an error message, but the link is correct.

Tried to correct video embed but it's not working, possibly some glitch with the editor so have reposted it below for you.

I couldn't get the video to post from YouTube ~

https:// www.youtube.com/watch?v=fykIMNlNYAk (without the space after //)

When I copied the URL that you posted, it gave me a slightly different address ~

Well I think it's something to do with the quote in your post, not really sure to be quite honest with you!

I normally don't have a problem with posting a YouTube video and having a quote in the same post. This is so weird. And, why are the URLs different?

Hi,

I got taken to the YouTube app using my iPad, so it's possible I ended up using a different URL after all the repeated attempts. I made sure it's the same video though.

I've since read some people have experienced a similar YouTube posting issue on a different website, similar issue though not identical. So I'm not sure what the cause, but it's looking like more of a YouTube player problem; the worst kind - intermittent!

The second one is known as a Short YouTube URL, they take you to the same place, whichever you use.
