Okay, now your view is working for me whether in Chrome or Firefox Quantum.

Also the 2nd home page using modified AltDashboard 6.81 at http://stillwaterweather.com/wx/2ndhome.php

For some reason they've dramatically reduced the bandwidth of the image downloads, affecting not only our script but their animations as well.  Reading the directories hasn't been throttled, just the image downloads.

They'll get it sorted out someday... :-(

The nesdis.noaa site seems to be producing images regularly now, and the site no longer throttles the image downloads.  At times they're 'cheating' a little in that when they don't have a fresh image to display they merely repeat the last image with a new time stamp applied.  When this happens the animation appears to stall while the time stamp(s) roll(s) ahead.

I've cleaned up the code by eliminating unused variables and logic as well as adding, primarily for my benefit, some additional comments.  Hence a new, but functionally unchanged, zip has been posted on my site.

I noticed that the 'Refresh' button in the iframe was triggering a filename reload, but not updating the filenames.  It turns out that the filename acquisition function isn't triggered by the HAniS refresh routine because of some error checking that this routine performs the results of which might leave an empty filename list and therefore must occur before the HAniS invocation.  The 'Refresh' button was simply reloading the same filename list.  It was therefore useless, and it has been eliminated in today's version, the zip of which is now up on my website.

I also shrunk the iframe's display of its top controls which I think looks better.

EDIT 2018 March 21 11:40 CDT:  There was a problem with the scripts I created when I trimmed out some debugging 'fat'. The script loaded the large images when a change was made to the display parameters.  This has been corrected in a new untrimmed zip.

The GOES16 satellite has been operational (for the most part) since May 1, so I've changed the 'Preliminary' to 'Operational' in the title of the HAniS script.

Ironically, this morning the images of all derivative sectors are currently stale.  Only the CONUS and Full Disk views are current. :roll:

Edit 6:10 AM CDT:  All images are now current.

Jerry, at this time (0730 MST) yours is not loading any images. Mine ("Preliminary") is. Yours does put up the date/timestamp button and stops there.

Just FYI.

That's an issue I haven't solved yet.  One or two parameter changes such as changing 'Image Number', 'AutoRefresh', or 'AutoRefresh Interval' once or sometimes twice will bring up the images.

I'll try setting the default to my regional map to see if that helps.

I've noticed that my self-hosted site, which uses the Upper Mississippi Valley GOES 16 animation for the satellite portion of my alternate dashboard NEVER fails to load properly.  This tells me that my GoDaddy shared server doesn't quite have the horsepower to parse the relevant, and massive, GOES Satellite Distribution Center directory's file list in a timely fashion.  Therefore it requires more than one and up to three attempts (using SHIFT+F5) to acquire the file list and display the images.

If you're interested in using the GOES16 images on your dashboard, here is the source file.  The modified 'index.php' table looks something like this:
Code: [Select]
  <table width="99%" style="border: none">
  <tr><td align="center">
    <a class="hvr-glow hvr-grow" onclick="x=window.open('wxradar.php?mode=4&amp;animated=1&amp;advisories=0&amp;track=0&amp;lightning=0#WUtop')" target="_blank" title="Larger View in New Tab"><img src="https://icons.wunderground.com/data/640x480/<?php echo $SITE['WUregion']; ?>_rd_anim.gif" alt="Regional Radar" width="320" height="240" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: none; cursor:pointer" /></a>
  </td>
  <td align="center" style="padding:0px">
    <a class="hvr-glow hvr-grow" title="Preliminary US Satellite Loops in New Tab"><iframe id="satLoops" width="332" height="259" align="left" src="wxGOES16-HAniSLoops-iframe-gww.php" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: none; cursor:pointer"></iframe></a>
  </td>
  </tr>
  <tr><td colspan="2" class="subHeader" align="center" style="font-size:75%; float:none">Radar image courtesy of <a href="https://www.weatherunderground.com" target="_blank" title="Opens in New Tab">Weather Underground</a> &amp; satellite images courtesy of <a href="https://www.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/GOES/sectors_index.php" target="_blank" title="Opens in New Tab">NESDIS</a>.</td></tr>
  </table>
Note that autoRefresh is Enabled and ON in the script.  The hover CSS class is available via my Scripts page.

That's why I've placed the current date and time at the bottom.  You can quickly determine if yet once again the servers have crashed... :-(

I think, but don't know, that the SSEC downloads their images directly from the satellite.  They're NEVER down, which is why I built that script to scrape their images.

I saw that this morning, the satellite images were not loading. I checked some other WxForum member's sites, but I found that the date was for yesterday (5/26).
I then checked through the code and found that the script draws from https://cdn.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/GOES16/ABI/SECTOR/. For example the directory https://cdn.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/GOES16/ABI/SECTOR/cgl/GEOCOLOR/ will list the files and the newest date was at 26-May-2018 22:40

The date on the "latest" image, in the image is shown as 26 May 2018 1552 UTC.

It seems that something died over at the NWS side. I am guessing that this won't be fixed until Tuesday...

UW-Madison SSEC has a phenomenal Satellite Viewer.  Check it out!

There aren't nearly as many different GOES16 views as with the NOAA GOES Satellite Distribution Center's offerings, but they're ALWAYS current.

(Reminder:  If you place a link to this SSEC page in your Saratoga menu you will need to change all the '&' delimiters in this URL to '&amp;amp;' for validation purposes.)

It looks like NWS might have fixed it.

Thanks for that link gwwilk.

I've removed 'OPERATIONAL' from the wxGOES16-HAniSLoops.php script (in context):
Code: [Select]
  <div align="center">
  <h2 align="center"><br/><span style="color:red">OPERATIONAL</span> GOES16 Satellite Loops</h2>
    <?php include('inc-wxGOES16-HAniSLoops.php');?>
  </div>
and replaced it with (in context):
Code: [Select]
  <div align="center">
  <h2 align="center"><br/><span style="font-size:24px">GOES16 Satellite Loops</span></h2>
    <?php include('inc-wxGOES16-HAniSLoops.php');?>
  </div>
You may modify the script yourself, download it directly here, or grab an updated zip here.  The only script that has changed is 'wxGOES16-HAniSLoops.php'.

I've made a small change in this script with the addition of a new switch, '$useUTC', that when 'true' will display the UTC time to the second in addition to the 'hhmm' Zulu time a la the old WWII war movies.

You can 'View' the change at work as well as obtain the revised script here.

Hi Jerry,

First thanks for keeping up to date with all your scripts, don't know how you do it, really, thanks!!

Second, looking at your last 2 posts here -- is it still ONLY the  wxGOES16-HAniSLoops.php that need to be updated or so all the other parts need to be updated?

Thanks for any help.
