I've temporarily resorted to an alternate source for satellite animation on my dashboard.  Here are some details.

Thanks, I just went back to    https://sirocco.accuweather.com/sat_mosaic_640x480_public/ei/isaene_.gif
I gave them permission to use my camera's so don't think they mind.

I went through their contact page and got a response. They expect it to be fixed Monday when the right peeps show up for work.

The GOES16 animated GIF problem has been repaired so that new images are rolling out again.

I've reverted to using this animation on my dashboard.

I noticed my image is back, but it is with a May 4 date on it.  I'm guessing the files haven't been generated yet.

Actually, the old images are being replaced by a new one every 5 minutes...'repopulating' but not quite there yet.

Something has gone wrong with the GOES16 Upper Mississippi Valley Geocolor GIF Animations over the past several days.  I noticed that my dashboard, which uses this Upper Mississippi Valley Geocolor GIF animation as the satellite view, was preventing the dashboard from loading promptly.  Indeed loading the UMV GOES16 Geocolor GIF animation hangs at a certain point for me, so I reverted to the HAniS UMV Geocolor animation on my dashboard.

It appears that only the UMV Geocolor GIF animation is affected by this problem for some reason.  In any event the HAniS UMV Geocolor animation displays far fewer images and seems more appropriate for my dashboard at this time.

I've been working on updating the GOES16 and GOES17 GIF Animation scripts, and you can see and download the latest versions on my scripts page.

Changes include new animations for Lightning and FireTemperature.  They're very interesting!

I'm noticing my GOES16 images are dead.  Anyone else noticing this?

GEOColor and all the flavors are down.

I noticed this as well, for GOES17.  What's going on?  All the animated GIFs from the NHC's website are dead: https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/satellite.php

As of 4:55pm CDT the 16 gif animation is back while the 17 is missing.  Things should get back to normal in due time.

It's the Goes 16 gif loops not working.

I use Upper Mississippi Valley image for my main page.  Looking at the path:  https://cdn.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/GOES16/ABI/SECTOR/umv/GEOCOLOR/ The GIF image is there.  But it's only 59 bytes. So I'm guessing what ever process they use to generate those GIF files is broken.

Indeed, the 16 and 17 GIF loops aren't working right now.  Meanwhile the HAniS-based loops are working just fine...

Looks like the GOES16 GIF loops might need a bit of tweaking.  The lightning page isn't working.  I saw yesterday they were don't maintenance.  Afterward, the GEOCOLOR GIF I used on my homepage changed paths.  So I'm guessing the lightning has as well.

From what I can tell, the name of the GIF file has slightly changed. I typically load the GEOCOLOR image for Southern Plains. In the GOES16 script, the link to this image is https://cdn.star.nesdis.noaa.gov//GOES16/ABI/SECTOR/sp/GEOCOLOR/GOES16-sp-GEOCOLOR-600x600.gif. Unfortunately, this is no longer working. However, if you change the "sp" in the image name portion of the URL to "SP", the image loads.

They're not currently creating the Lightning GIF loops.

I'm not making any changes until the GIF loops get sorted out.

They've been making some changes in the pathing.  I had to change all of mine from uppercase to lower case in the area (SP = southern plains).  https://www.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/goes/sector.php?sat=G16&sector=sp and https://cdn.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/GOES16/ABI/SECTOR/sp/GEOCOLOR/ will show you what is available.
