Any set of pictures are going to look diferent because.:
They were taken from different viewpoints
They were taken from different distances
They were taken  by different cameras
They were taken for different results
They were taken for different reasons
And probably zillions of  other differences
But they are all real photos of the same thing-the earth.
I wonder ?   .......Suppose the earth was really flat ? .....Would that reverse the flat earth (Quote) "All photographs are either fakes or paintings" ?

Stick close to your P.C's and never go to sea
And You All may be Rulers of The Flat Earth Society

Yes, Never, Never, Never go to sea
Just look out your windows,
Flat ! Flat ! Flat !
Is all that you shall see !

As you may see, the Earth turned.
As you may see, the clouds did not change.

No, I do not see! The earth did not turn between the photos! They were presumably taken at almost the same time
As I said berore, the photos are from different satellites at different locations! Do I have to spoon-feed every little bit of information to you like a baby?

You are the same as so many other Flat Earthers. If you don't understand something, you declare it a fake!
For pity sake, investigate the problem and learn why YOU can't understand it. Still, this is exactly the reason so many believe that the earth must be flat.

Are you saying that the two photos were taken by two different sattelites, from different locations, at different times; yet the cloud formations are the same
That is worse than the flat-earther ideas about the "blue marble"

Those two photos were taken at the same time by two satellites  that are 14.5 degrees apart.   Goes 16 is at 89.5 West Longitude and the older Goes 13 is at 75 West Longitude.  Different satellites, same time, slightly different location.

So "That is worse than the flat-earther ideas about the 'blue marble'" is it, when NASA themselves say

Blue Marble: Next Generation offers greater spatial detail of the surface and spans a longer data collection period than the original. The original Blue Marble was a composite of four months of MODIS observations with a spatial resolution (level of detail) of 1 square kilometer per pixel.
And you by much detective found that The original Blue Marble was a composite image -  :P :P :P such brilliant detective work.  :P :P :P

No wonder you understand nothing! Where did I say "two different satellites, from different locations, at different times"?

I said "No, I do not see! The earth did not turn between the photos! They were presumably taken at almost the same time

I had not found this reference before, but see

GOES-16 and GOES-13 Earth Photo Comparison from Jan 15, 2017.
Jan 15, 2017

With five-times greater coverage, four-times the spatial resolution, and three-times the spectral channels than earlier generations of GOES-16's Advanced Baseline Imager can provide more detailed imagery and multi-task in ways that previous GOES imagers could not. For proof of that, consider the following image comparing full-disk images captured by two NOAA satellites -- GOES-16 and GOES-13 -- at the same time on the same day: 1:07 p.m. EST on January 15, 2017.

From NOAA Satellite Information Services, GOES-16 Image Gallery
There, has that image got enough detail[1] and is "at the same time on the same day: 1:07 p.m. EST on January 15, 2017" clear enough for even you to understand?

Can't you do internet searches where you live? You could so easliy found this out yourself.

  • Nothing has to obey the Coriolis. It is not "a Law", but a subtle effect due to the earth's rotation.
    The Coriolis effect is nothing more than objects moving essentially independently of the earth's rotation obeying Newton's Laws.

  • Moving air and the water vapour in it is affected by the  Coriolis effect, that is why:
    Apart from a region close to the equator
    All low pressure weather systems
             in the Northern Hemisphere (including hurricanes and typhoons) rotate anti-clockwise
    and
             In the Southern Hemisphere (including cyclones) rotate clockwise.

    But all high pressure weather systems
             in the Northern Hemisphere rotate clockwise
    and
             In the Southern Hemisphere rotate anti-clockwise.
Please explain these facts on the Flat Earth!

Who said "million-dollar predicting weather-sattelites(sic)" themselves predict any weather?

Really? I do suspect that even a ground-hog might be able to spell satellites better that 789.
