Watching the SpaceX launch this afternoon? Check out this satellite capture of the the heat put off from the rocket shortly after the launch as denoted by the red pixel using the Fire Temperature satellite RGB.
For #ScienceSaturday let’s look at the severe thunderstorms east of the Cascades today. A 30-minute satellite loop shows rising air as what looks like boiling water near places like Heppner, indicating the most intense updrafts of the storms. @NWSPendleton
Hi-resolution weather satellite imagery captured the historic SpaceX launch from moments ago. It is visible for only a few frames before the rocket accelerates out of satellite coverage. Can you spot it? #LaunchAmerica #arwx
Not only can we step outside to view launches, but we also catch them on GOES-16 satellite! Here's the 1 minute 3.9 imagery from today successful crewed launch. Space Coast is the Best Coast! #LaunchAmerica
Watching the action at @NASAKennedy from here in central Illinois. GOES-16 satellite channel 7 (one minute imagery) showing the Falcon 9 rocket quickly moving as the red/brown dot moving upward on the image. #LaunchAmerica
We saw some awfully bright looking "clouds" showing up via satellite in southeast Minnesota earlier this afternoon. Well after some investigation, we were able to determine they were actually solar panel arrays that the sun was hitting just right!
Satellite imagery showing showers and thunderstorms starting to pop up across parts of the state. Expect this activity to primarily remain east of Phoenix going into the afternoon and early evening hours. #azwx
Each second, 1.5 million tons of solar material shoot off the Sun into space. The magnetosphere shields Earth, but the solar wind can get in near the poles and disrupt satellite, radio & GPS signals. 3 new missions aim to improve this technology problem:
Smoke from wildfires in the #AmazonRainforest spreads across several Brazilian states in this natural-color image taken by a @NASAEarth instrument on the Suomi NPP satellite. Although it is fire season in Brazil, the number of fires may be record-setting:
European satellite agency concludes that June was the hottest month ever recorded on earth, our planet.
