Solar Eclipse Visualizations

Whether you caught Monday's solar eclipse from the totality zone, from your back yard, on the Internet, or skipped the whole thing, you might find a couple of things folks at Unidata have put together interesting. A big plus: no driving or traffic jams involved!

Read on to learn how to view the path of the moon's shadow across the continental United States in the IDV, and see some animations of the eclipse created with the MetPy package.

Unidata to Launch Observational Satellite

GOES-16 image
Satellite images are really cool.

Following on the heels of NOAA's successful launch of the GOES-16 Earth observing satellite in November 2016, Unidata is moving ahead with plans to launch its own orbiter early next year. Unlike GOES-16, which provides a wide variety of observations including rapidly refreshing a full-disk imagery of the Western hemisphere, the first Geostationary Unidata Observing Satellite (GUOS-1) will focus its instruments on observations of the area immediately surrounding the Unidata Program Center in Boulder, Colorado.
