Global Skywatch

understanding geostationary satellite images

I have been a weather watcher since I began working outdoors a lot about 35 years ago. It was also around then I studied meteorology in college. Nowadays we have much better tools readily accessable to anybody. We also have geoengineers working the weather over on a massive, global scale.

One of my favorite tools is geostationary satellite GOES 17. Geostationary means it stays in a fixed position relative to our planet. I check this daily. It is, in fact, my home page.

Learn to read it and The Weather Underground regional infrared satellite image and you can predict your weather more accurately than the computer models that do not allow for geoengineering.

I produced the following videos to help show you how to read GOES 17 clips.
