I am using Leaflet.js , OpenStreetMap & Angular to display a map. Does anyone know how to implement the equivalent of Google Map Satellite View on this using a free library or plugin ?

 Thanks in advance.

If i check the official site from OSM and check the layers, there are the following:
- Standard
- Cycle Map
- Transport Map
- Humanitarian
but i couldn't find any satellite map or layer .

After some search on the internet I found out, that you can use MapBox .

Mapbox Satellite uses global satellite and aerial imagery from commercial providers, NASA, and USGS. As cities grow and landscapes change, we add newer, clearer, and more attractive imagery.

here are some alternatives with satellite view:

Using leaflet you have to choose map provider so instead of using OSM you can use Mapbox.

I'm using mapbox with satellite  https://www.mapbox.com/maps/satellite/

You may want to check this leaflet plugin this work with NASA  https://github.com/aparshin/leaflet-GIBS

Let me know if you need help to set it.

Thanks for all your suggestions, however the decision was taken for us to use Google Maps.
