35,786 km above earth, Himawari-8, Japan's most advanced meteorological satellite, observes the Eastern hemisphere day and night. For one year we look through the eyes of the distant observer. Earth's beauty and fragility, weather's wonders, forces and disasters - from space, it all looks miraculous.
