New satellite images every day
Zoom Earth shows new NASA satellite images every day. Explore satellite and aerial imagery of the Earth in a simple, zoomable interface. Zoom into near-live satellite images from NASA and Bing Maps. Previously known as Flash Earth.
Bing Maps provides the high resolution imagery. NASA satellites VIIRS, Aqua and Terra provide the daily imagery. Globe images are captured hourly by DSCOVR.
Dates for Bings Maps imagery can’t be determined. Only NASA imagery is updated daily.
This is usually due to a delay in processing. However some areas such as the north pole during December and the south pole during June will be appear black due to the tilt of the earth and the Arctic Circle. Aqua/Terra imagery has some missing “stripes” around the equator due to the way those satellites orbit the Earth.
Bing Maps has an SDK. NASA imagery is free to use.
