NOAA Office of Satellite and Product Operations

SPECIAL MESSAGE:

This NOAA site will no longer provide GOES-East imagery. For access to high resolution GOES-East imagery from GOES-16, please go to the site: https://www.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/GOES/index.php. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

The NOGAPS animation is split into two map types: Daily and Realtime.

Daily and Realtime display both brightness temperatures (BTs) and geophysical parameters (GPs), seen within the Products table. Daily displays the BTs and GPs images for the past 7 days, while Realtime produces hourly images processed for the past several days.

Click on one of the two Play buttons to start the animation loop and again to stop the loop. One Play button displays ascending orbits and northern hemisphere images from cylindrical and polar stereographic projections respectively. The second Play button displays descending orbits and southern hemisphere images from cylindrical and polar stereographic projections respectively. To change the animation speeed, adjust the slider. At any time, click the previous or next buttons to navigate the currently loaded images manually.
