Don't underestimate those sources of error- ...

This is an infrared image from the 10.8 micron channel (TIR1) of INSAT-3D. That website you link to is a bit misleading because (for me at least) following the link puts the text describing the 0.65 micron visible channel ...

Op: You have posted an infrared image, but your question and the link with its the legend is about visible light images. Though similar rules apply, the outcome is fundamentally different, e.g. dark sea and light landmass on visible, vice versa on infrared during day. To the link: it is a visible light and not an infrared image. Though it is close to near ...
