Hi All,

I am hoping someone can help me. I'm looking for a highresolution satellite image of Australia (pref WA coast) from 8th July 2017 (last year) between 17:30 and 18:30 WST (09:30-10:30 GMT). Ideally 500m resolution Himawari 8 image (0.64 um), anything less than that probably wont show what I'm looking for.

I can only find decent images back 4 weeks from RAMMB

This is to try and figure out the source of an amazing large scale cloud formation seen at Ningalo Station. I'll post a pic of it later.

Appreciate any help!

Ok here is the cloud formation - appears to be an incredibly regular Altocumulus Undulatus ...

This the best I've found so far - 250m resolution (MODIS) image from Terra on 02:50 UTC (10:50am WST) on the same day. But it is too early to show this formation which was captured at about 18:15 WST

Not sure if the resolution suits your needs but certaintly some interesting feature on the 18:20 water vapour image

Thanks Flowin, yep that dry slot feature is quite interesting. THere is slow lower cloud associated with it on the HD
