This event focuses on exciting weather satellite technology used by the National Weather Service. A brand new satellite, named GOES-16, was launched on November 19, 2016. This instrument, featuring more images in higher resolution, produces not only amazing views of storms but also offers earlier notice of storm and other weather processes. Technological advancements such as GOES-16 provide the potential for increasing warning lead times. All weather enthusiasts and those curious about how weather is viewed from space are encouraged to attend!
