MSG visible image

The satellite image of Belgium is composed by using both the infrared and the visible light channel from the satellite. Because there are no visible light images during the night this composition of channels gives us an image that can be used to observe the clouds by day and by night. The pixelated artifacts are due to the lower resolution of the infrared channel.
