    Thanks. So MANY satellites to choose from!
    Cannot see any named Kiwisat or Ozsat, so does anyone know which one is for our region?

    Surprising to see city lights!

    Try this site. The one of Ruapehu is fantastic.

    These 27 satellite images have been gathered from a range of sources, including NASA Image Exchange, Visible Earth, and The Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth. Surf over to:
