GOES Imagery Visible
This shows the most recent image of the United States, taken from a NOAA satellite. This image is taken in visible light, or how the human eye would see from the satellite. Sunrise and set can be tracked in this image.
GOES Imagery Water Vapor
This shows the most recent image of the United States, from a NOAA satellite. This image is taken using a wavelength sensitive to the content of water vapor in the atmosphere. Bright and colored areas indicate high water vapor (moisture) content (colored and white areas indicate the presence of both high moisture content and/or ice crystals). Black and brown areas indicate little or no moisture present. WV imagery is useful for both determining locations of moisture and atmospheric circulations.

From 35,800 kilometers (22,300 miles) above Earth, NOAA's two GOES satellites provide half-hourly observations of Earth and its environment.
Visible imagery provides highly detailed cloud information during daylight hours, whereas infrared imagery provides more information about cloud and atmospheric properties and is available around the clock.
