Another sat ready to go
« on: January 29, 2018, 11:32:43 AM »
From NASA...

"GOES-S will be renamed GOES-17 when it reaches geostationary orbit. Once the satellite is declared operational late this year, it will occupy NOAA’s GOES-West position and provide faster, more accurate data for tracking wildfires, tropical cyclones, fog and other storm systems and hazards that threaten the western United States, Hawaii, Alaska, Mexico, Central America and part of South America."

Launch on 1 March. Get ready, Jerry:!: :grin:
