They're not currently creating the Lightning GIF loops.
I'm not making any changes until the GIF loops get sorted out.
I looked at the folder that the GIF used to be in.  There are other JPG files being updated.  It's just the GIF image that isn't being generated.

The GOES satellite page had a contact link.  I reached out to them.  I got the following response:

Investigating. We had a major code update last week, and those might not have been switched on afterwards.

Thank you for your note.

Bravo!!!  The GIF loops in all their variations have been restored as of this morning.  No changes were needed to the script!

This morning the GIF loops pointed to by this script are stale, i.e. yesterday's loops.

The animations on NESDIS are current however. Moreover they're creating GIF loops for all of the derivations with either 12 or 24 frame animations.

This script needs a major overhaul when I get a chance...

Meanwhile the HAniS-based loops keep chugging along because they assemble the loop from the individual images.

I contacted them.  Here is their response.


  Thanks for taking the time to write and for using our data.

  No, it's not going away.  Yesterday NOAA switches our western satellites production from GOES-17 to GOES-18 and we've been debugging some issues since then.  We expect Animated GIFs to restart shortly.

Thanks again and please feel free to write if you ever notice anything amiss.

Regards,
Matt.

I'll wait then, but I think the animated GIF's are up already.

Time will tell.

Looks like they are updating again.
