Please Note:  

GOES-15 supplemental operations ended on March 2, 2020. The distribution of GOES-15 satellite products has been discontinued.

GOES-East ABI Flex Mode (Routine) Schedule - Abridged

Disclaimer: Due to time drift, the image time may vary up to 1 minute.
Explanation: ABI Mode 6 has a 10 minute repeating cadence, see the linked figure for the GOES-16 ABI Mode 6 timeline.

The precise cadence is 00:10:00.00373 minutes in duration. Over time, this adds up and slowly pushes the timeline back until images start rolling over the minute boundary. This will require additional timeline resynchronizations on GOES-16 in the future. It will appear in the GOES-16 schedule. GOES-17 does not experience this roll over because NOAA synchronizes the timeline daily at 08:00 UTC.

This is a one hour sector scan sample of the GOES-16 ABI Flex Mode (Routine) Schedule consisting of Full Disk, CONUS, and smaller MESO(scale) scans. This one hour abridged schedule is shown due to the high number of MESO scan sectors transmitted in 24 hours (one MESO sector every 30 seconds or 2880 total MESO scans per day). The schedule repeats every hour (where XX is the hour).
