Global Cloudmap Distribution Service Disruption

Last available cloudmap from 2015-12-04

In case you're one of those people using xfce-planet or otherwise depend on our global cloudmap service (introduced here), you'll probably already have noticed that the image wasn't updated for 6 days now. The service itself is running on our side, but it seems as if MTSAT (covering 145E) doesn't send any more images since 2015-12-04. We'll try to get some more information about the outage to provide fresh, free and silky-smooth cloudmaps for everyone again. Sorry for any inconvenience, but we don't manage those birds, unfortunately…


Looks like this is not a temporary problem but in fact scheduled termination:

******* I M P O R T A N T   N O T I C E ***************************************
MTSAT HRIT and LRIT services will be terminated at 0630 UTC on 4 December 2015.
JMA plans to decommission MTSAT-1R due to fuel limitations. As a result,MTSAT-2 
data broadcast via MTSAT-1R will end effective 0630 UTC, December 4, 2015


At the moment it's unclear, if HimawariCast dissemination will be covered by NERC/Dundee or if we have to get the 145E spot from somewhere else.
