This recent imagery from NOAA’s GOES-East satellite shows sunset spreading across the United States from east to west leaving a trail of sparkling lights in its wake. We can also see a major winter storm barreling across the upper midwest into the northeastern U.S. and a new storm system entering the northwest U.S. from the Pacific Ocean.  Meanwhile, a large band of moisture-laden air streams into the U.S. from the Pacific and across the southern Rocky Mountains. Quite a busy but beautiful scene from the GOES-East satellite parked in its geostationary observing post 22,000 miles (36,000 km) overhead. GOES-East images are updated every five minutes. You can find the most current GOES-East imagery here.   Track GOES-East (aka GOES-16) here.
