Back to Satellite Page
OR SATELLITE help
The Satellite Page contains 2 major sections.
There is a wealth of knowledge about satellites, images, and data on
the world wide web. An excellent page was written by David Johnson of
NCAR that describes
weather satellites and orbits.
- The first section contains links to National- and
regional-scale satellite images from the GOES-8 satellite.
Images are provided for 3 of the different wavelength
sensors on the satellite.
- The next section contains links to satellite images with
LIFR/IFR/VFR/MVFR icons overlayed.
