Your source for archived weather imagery
We have an archive of GOES East images in the visible and 4 infrared (IR) bands, including water vapor. Imagery may be viewed via our satellite animation image viewer.
The U.S. NOAA GOES East geosynchronous weather satellite is located 35,800 km (22,300 statute miles) above the equator at 75°W, over the Amazon River. The current GOES East satellite, before launch was designated GOES 13, and when launched in May 2006, became GOES N. When GOES N became operational on April 14 2010, it was designated GOES East. Although its primary mission is U.S. coverage, it also provides coverage of most of North America, South America, the Atlantic Ocean, and eastern portions of the Pacific Ocean.
The following NOAA GOES East spectral band images are available in our archive.
|Band||Visible||IR2||IR3 (water vapor)||IR4||IR6|
|Wavelength||0.65 µm||3.9 µm||6.5 µm||10.7 µm||13.3 µm|
International Weather Archive maintains an archive of images that go back 2 months. Our image data interval is every 1 hour, with the exception of full disk images which have an interval of 3 hours.
