When it comes to the best live earth satellite imagery, this

is the one to read article I live in a city where the weather is a bitch and it’s always a few hours before my house shuts down.

This is not because I’m an idiot.

I’ve learned how to prepare and get around for my city’s extreme weather conditions.

I also learned that weather is the lifeblood of our lives.

There is nothing more important than being able to keep the city running smoothly and the lives of those I love running smoothly as well.

And in case you’re wondering, yes, there are many times I have to postpone work or travel. 

But I do have a backup plan if things get bad.

If I have enough time, I can do a quick-hit look through the night sky and get a glimpse of the aurora borealis.

It’s a little like seeing the moon at dawn, but in a totally different light. 

On top of that, if you have a backyard that can accommodate a large collection of digital cameras and live-streaming devices, you can have your own little “digital sky” to look at in your backyard. 

I have a few cameras I can use as backup for this process.

One of them is a small black Canon DSLR with a 24.2 megapixel sensor.

I use the Canon EF 28-70mm f/2.8 L II II USM Lens, which is a zoom lens that allows for great depth of field in low-light conditions. 

And the other is a Canon 35mm f1.4 L II US Macro Lens, a zoom that is great for close-up photography. 

Both of these cameras are great for photographing things like mountains and other wildlife. 

As long as you have enough space for all of your cameras, you should be able to make this a pretty quick and easy project.

The important thing is that you’re not going to get any images from these cameras before the auroras do. 

There are plenty of things you can do to ensure that the best images from your own backyard will be your best images. 

You can: Choose the best weather conditions you can imagine.

You can even get the best view of the stars by having your back yard covered in plastic to prevent your eyes from getting blinded. 

Create a small, portable home theater for viewing the auroral show.

The more cameras you have, the more space you’ll need to have a portable space to shoot images from. 

Use a weather forecast app to get a better idea of when the aurorae will be most intense. 

Set up a “satellite-ready” backyard for viewing with a variety of sensors and camera accessories. 

If you’re willing to put in the time, this is definitely a project that you can tackle, but you should always keep in mind that the better your weather forecast, the better the quality of the images you’ll get. 

The auroras will be visible from all over the world, so make sure to be prepared to be outside and in the middle of the action.
