Satellite view of the Earth. Coloured satellite image of the Earth, showing Africa. Parts of central Africa are obscured by extensive thunderstorm systems. The Sahara Desert and the Middle East are free of cloud. South Africa may also be seen, just lower right of centre. Part of South America is just visible at lower left. The clouds are differentiated by colour addition; high level clouds are a bluish white whilst lower level clouds have a pale orange/brown tint. Land colours approximate to natural tones. The data for this image were gathered by a Meteosat weather satellite.
