GOES-18 Resources

NOAA’s GOES-18 launched on March 1, 2022, from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. GOES-18 is the third satellite in the GOES-R Series, the Western Hemisphere’s most advanced weather-observing and environmental-monitoring system.

As our sentinels in the sky, NOAA’s GOES satellites help protect the one billion people who live and work in the Americas. Data from GOES-18 helps meteorologists see the big picture as well as read the fine print, providing critical real-time information before, during and after severe weather and disasters strike.

GOES-18 provides advanced imagery and atmospheric measurements, real-time mapping of lightning activity, and monitoring of space weather.
