NOAA: “While most of America will be looking up on August 21 during the solar eclipse, NOAA’s GOES-16, America’s newest weather satellite, will be looking down at Earth, tracking the moon’s shadow across the United States with its highly sophisticated Advanced Baseline Imager. NOAA plans to publish images of the eclipse from GOES-16 and its other polar-orbiting and geostationary satellites as they become available. The GOES-16 imager will provide three, high-resolution color animations and still pictures of the eclipse. And, flying onboard NOAA’s DSCOVR satellite — in orbit one million miles away between the Earth and sun, and past the moon — is the NASA EPIC camera. The high-powered EPIC camera will also take images and a movie of the moon’s shadow on Earth that will likely be available within one or two days of the eclipse.”
