Videos: GOES-17 Data and Imagery

A Note to the Weather Community About Using GOES-17 Data:

NOAA’s GOES-17 satellite has not been declared operational and its data are preliminary and non-operational. Users assume all risk related to their use of GOES-17 data and NOAA disclaims any and all warranties, whether express or implied, including (without limitation) any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose.

GOES-17 Infrared Imagery of Storms in the Western U.S.:

This color-enhanced imagery from one of the GOES-17’s longwave infrared bands shows convective activity in the western U.S. on July 29, 2018. Band 14 is used to characterize atmospheric processes associated with thunderstorms and convective complexes. The cold clouds in this animation (colored red and black) are associated with a storm system that included reports of tornadoes, hail and strong wind. Download Video Credit: NOAA/NASA

GOES-17 Imagery from all 16 of the Advanced Baseline Imager's Channels:

This 16-panel imagery shows an animated snapshot of the continental U.S. and surrounding oceans from each of the Advanced Baseline Imager’s channels on July 29, 2018. This includes, from top left to bottom right, two visible channels, four near-infrared channels, and ten infrared channels. Each channel has a specific purpose in discerning meteorological and environmental features. A number of features can be seen in this imagery, including clouds over the mid-Mississippi region and off both coasts, the warm land temperatures over the Western U.S., and atmospheric moisture. This imagery was captured during a “cool” season, when all 16 channels are available 24 hours per day. During “warm” seasons, it’s estimated that there will some data outages for 9 of the channels to varying degrees during the night. Download Video Credit: NOAA/NASA

GOES-17 Sees Ferguson Fire:

GOES-17 shares its first wildfire imagery showing the deadly Ferguson Fire burning near Yosemite National Park. The Fire has burned over 12,000 acres and is only 5% contained as of July 17, 2018. This loop is from 2:46 pm to 7:06 pm PDT on July 16, 2017. Download Video Credit: NOAA/NASA/CIRA

Stereoscopic Views of Convection Using GOES-16 and GOES-17:

Can you see this animation in 3D? Test your depth perception with this stereoscopic view of storms over the Tennessee River Valley on July 11, 2018. GOES East (GOES-16) is on the left, GOES17 on the right. The GOES-17 satellite (launched March 1, 2018), is currently in a test position, viewing Earth from 22,000 miles above the equator at 89.5 degrees west longitude. Meanwhile, GOES East is positioned at 75.2 degrees west longitude. The relative proximity of these two satellites means that we can create stereoscopic, or three-dimensional, imagery by placing views from each satellite next to one another. To view the animation in three dimensions, cross your eyes so that three separate images are present, then focus on the image in the middle. Download Video Credit: NOAA/NASA/CIMSS

NOAA GOES-17 Shares First ABI Full Disk Imagery:

GOES-17 captured sunset over Earth’s Western Hemisphere on May 20, 2018, using the Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) instrument. This view from over 22,000 miles out in space is presented in GeoColor, which captures features of the Earth’s surface and atmosphere in vivid detail and colors intuitive to human vision.

NOAA GOES-17 Shares View of Stratocumulus Clouds:

GOES-17 monitors clouds in our atmosphere with amazing detail and clarity. These dynamic marine stratocumulus cloud patterns off the western coast of Chile in the southeastern Pacific Ocean are revealed by the Advanced Baseline Imager on May 20, 2018. Download Video Credit: NOAA/NASA

GOES-17 Captures Clouds over California:

The GOES-17 Advanced Baseline Imager captured a deck of low level stratus clouds covering the southern California coast on May 20, 2018. Download Video Credit: NOAA/NASA

GOES-17 Satellite Observes Smoke from Wildfires:

The Advanced Baseline Imager on GOES-17 detects smoke plumes as shown in this imagery of wildfires in central and northern Saskatchewan, Canada, observed on May 20, 2018. Download Video Credit: NOAA/NASA

First Lightning Imagery from GOES-17:

NOAA’s GOES-17 satellite has transmitted its first Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM) data. This GLM data in this animation shows storms quickly intensifying and forming into an impressive line across the U.S. Plains on May 9, 2018. These storms quickly grew into an impressive line of storms that persisted into the evening and overnight hours, producing large hail, high winds, and a few tornadoes. Experience from the initial GOES East GLM is helping scientists and engineers tune this new instrument, which eventually will extend GLM coverage over most of the Pacific Ocean. Data from GLM helps inform forecasters when a storm is forming, intensifying and becoming more dangerous. Download Video Credit: NOAA/NASA
