Use this app to view recent infrared, visible, and water vapor loops from the NASA Geostationary Operational Environmental (GOES) satellite.
This app is especially good for seeing fronts, tropical storms, and hurricanes well before they arrive.
New data frames usually come once every 15-minutes and are added to the end of the loops automatically.
Pan the images side-to-side and use pinch-to-zoom if you are on iPhone.
Available geographic views:
East - North Hemisphere
East - Caribbean and West Atlantic Hurricane Region
West - Pacific Ocean
Image timestamps are displayed in UTC, but your local timezone offset is made available for reference.
This app is not affiliated with NASA.
There is a fixed banner ad from Google on the bottom of the loops.
- Added a toggle-able cloud color key to the infrared views.
- Fixed the "Share This App" link.
- Added a 20px spacer above the ad.

Yes I’m a nerd!
So excited to see GOES-17 (west) sat in a loop. I’m retired and don’t have access to a computer right now. This shows the atmospheric rivers coming towards the states. What goes on in the Pacific, affects the climate in the states.
I can also see what the jet stream is doing any time I want. That’s hard for the public to access by just an iPhone. That RRR tells us California won’t have water for a while.
Hey how about showing the Atlantic side of the world!! Or the whole globe so that people can get views of all of the weather patterns that happen in the world.
Basic satellite for visible, infrared and water vapor! Thanks!! Great find. Not to many app out there like this one.
