Earth centred on Australasia

Australasia. Combined visible and infrared satellite image of Australasia taken by the Chinese FY-2 satellite. This geostationary weather satellite was launched by China on 10th June 1997. In this image, Australia can be seen at lower right, and India is at upper left. China is above India, covered in cloud. At lower left is the Indian Ocean, with the Pacific Ocean at upper right. At centre, smothered in clouds, are the islands which make up Indonesia and Malaysia. Weather satellites such as FY-2 are used to track the movements of major weather systems to help with forecasts.
