These are wonderful. A similar palette is being used by many amateurs making IR/UV images at much lower resolution.

A couple of attempts to merge the sunlit cloud deck imaged in near-UV and near-IR with nighttime thermal data taken at the 2.26 micron wavelength, which appear to be the least overexposed of the 2 micron camera images. The two sets of images were taken up to 2 hours apart, so the geolocation of these images probably isn't super accurate but should be fairly representative. I've also added a heat colormap to colorize the thermal infrared data - the scale doesn't correspond to specific temperatures or anything, it's just there to enhance some of the detail present in those images while also emphasizing that it's thermal data.
