NOAA's newest polar-orbiting satellite, NOAA-20, captured this magnificent view of the Earth's North Pole on 12 April 2018.
On 04 April, 2018, the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on the Suomi NPP satellite captured this natural-colour image of sea ice between various levels of cloud cover. As austral autumn progresses, sea ice around Antarctica is starting to grow again after reaching its annual minimum extent on 20–21 February.
The TripleSat satellite takes us over Helsinki in Finland in this optical image from 16 July 2017.
On the 23 October, 2017, an astronaut flying aboard the International Space Station took this long lens photograph of Doha, the capital city of Qatar, located on the north-eastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula. The Pearl-Qatar, a man-made island spanning approximately 1.5 square kilometers (0.6 square miles), extends from the mainland and is among the first properties in Qatar that can be owned by non-Qataris.
This Copernicus Sentinel-2 image from 02 March 2018 shows Amsterdam and the IJmeer and Markemeer freshwater lakes covered by a thin layer of ice.
Pléiades acquired this 50cm resolution optical image of the Phra Nakhon District in Bangkok, Thailand, on 17 June 2017.
This image is a false colour composite image of 250 m spatial resolution captured over the Okhotsk Sea and Japan islands with SGLI onboard the SHIKISAI satellite around 10:20 on 06 January 2018 (JST).
Pleiades acquired this 50cm resolution optical image of Saint Barthélemy Island after Hurricane Irma on 09 October 2017.
The Copernicus Sentinel-1 mission takes us over the Bering Strait, which connects the Pacific and Arctic Oceans between Russia and the US state of Alaska. This image was created by combining three radar scans taken on: 11 December 2017, 23 December 2017 and 04 January 2018.
An astronaut aboard the International Space Station (ISS) took this oblique photograph of smoke-filled canyons along the eastern margin of the Andes Mountains on 23 July 2016.

On 02 December, 2017, the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8 acquired this natural-colour image of the rocky landscape of Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand.
The UK-DMC2 satellite acquired this high resolution image showing part of Northeast Greenland National Park on 11 July 2017.
The new CartoSat-2F satellite acquired this multi-spectral image of Indore, India, on 15 January 2018.
The Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission captured rare snowfall in northwest Algeria, on the edge of the Sahara desert on 08 January.
Forty-eight days after JPSS-1 (NOAA-20) was launched into Earth orbit, it sent back its first Cross-track Infrared Sounder (CrIS) science data. This data is a part of a series of instrument activation and checkout tests that occur before the satellite is declared fully operational. CrIS is one of five key instruments onboard NOAA-20 that will improve day-to-day weather forecasting while extending the record of many long-term observations of Earth's climate.
The Sea of Okhotsk is what oceanographers call a marginal sea: a region of a larger ocean basin that is partly enclosed by islands and peninsulas hugging a continental coast. With the Kamchatka Peninsula, the Kuril Islands, and Sakhalin Island partly sheltering the sea from the Pacific Ocean, and with prevailing, frigid northwesterly winds blowing out from Siberia, the sea is a winter ice factory and a year-round cloud factory.
