Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES)

The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite system (GOES) are a series of geosynchronous satellites operated by the United States’ National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The GOES system provides us with solar imagery, magnetometer data, solar X-ray data and data on high energy solar protons at Earth. Below you will find solar imagery at a multitude of wavelengths from a number of different GOES missions.
