Weather Satellite Image
The composite image below has been created from images taken by the GOES-East and GOES-West Satellites, which are operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). These weather satellites are located high above the equator in geosynchronous orbits. From this location, they provide the big picture when it comes to North American weather. This composite image is updated hourly and is comprised of infrared images that have been superimposed onto a topographical map. This image is from the Meteorological Service of Canada.
