The latest Landsat 8 satellite imagery is some of the coolest imagery you can access, with remarkable images and information about the Earth being updated daily. The Landsat imagery contains data hidden in each pixel, which when unlocked, can tell you a lot about what you are looking at.  This is what scientists and analyst use to understand how the Earth is changing...
  Landsat 8 has been online for a couple of months now, and the images look incredible. While all of the bands from previous Landsat missions are still incorporated, there are a couple of new ones, such as the coastal blue band water penetration/aerosol detection and the cirrus cloud band for cloud masking and other applications. Here’s a rundown of some common band combinations applied to Landsat 8 OLI, displayed as a red, green, blue (RGB):
