Satellite Photographs 1971-1973

This section comprises 53 very old satellite cloud photographs from the years 1971-1973 inclusive. They were originally published in the Guardian newspaper and were then sellotaped into & stored in an old exercise book! I have tidied them up as much as possible given the passage of time! It is interesting to see just how much satellite imaging has changed and been immeasurably improved in the intervening, almost 50 years since these early ‘polar orbiting’ and ‘geo-stationary’ satellite photographs were first taken! There really is no comparison to today’s satellite images!
