Some programs, as Celestia, are using planetary maps. A kind of map which can be draped around a globe to get a full realistic view from space. The textures offered on this site can be used for this purpose. They are based on images from 5 geostationairy weather satellites They are usually available between 18-22 UTC and are valid for 12 UTC, that day. There is no warranty of a full daily service.
Meteo Maarssen is a Dutch amateur weather station and doesn't have a 7/24 service. Data feed and data availability is therefore not guaranteed. Data is usual published each day around 18:00 UTC and is only published if the station is manned, so there may be sometimes a delay. There is no service during holidays or vacations.

Where nn[yymmdd] is;
nn = ir (infrared) or cl (cloudmap)
The infrared map is shown in false colours, from white (around -10°C) down to dark red (around -60°) and pink (-80°). The cloud map is only in gray and gives a representative view of the full earth. This version gives the most natural look of the earth.
