Himawari-8 is the last generation of the low spatial resolution satellite imagery that has capability to detect the thermal variation on the earth of every 10 minute. This must be very potential to be used for detecting land/forest fire. This paper has explored the spectral prospective of the Himawari-8 for detecting land/forest fire hotspot. The main objective for this study is to identify the potential use of Himawari-8 for detecting of land forest fire hotspot. The study area was performed in Ogan Komering Ilir, South of Sumatra, which on 2015 occur great forest/land fire event. The main process included in this study are image projection, training sample collection and spectral statistical analysis measured by calculate statistic, they are average values, standard deviation values from reflectance visible band value and brightness temperature value, beside that validation of data obtained from medium resolution data of Landsat 8 with the similar acquisition time. The study found that the Himawari-8 has good capacity to identify land/forest fire hotspot as expressed for high accuracy assessment using band 3 and band 7.
