Watch NOAA’s GOES-T Weather Satellite Launch to Geostationary Orbit


We’re ready to GOES – are you? Join us to watch the launch of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) next weather observing and environmental monitoring system satellite. The satellite, currently known as GOES-T, will provide critical data to improve weather forecasting and to better track storms and other hazards.

GOES-T is scheduled for liftoff at 4:38 p.m. EST (21:38 UTC) aboard a United Launch Alliance Atlas V 451 rocket to join our fleet of spacecraft monitoring Earth from space. There is a two-hour launch window. This launch is being managed by NASA’s Launch Services Program based at Kennedy Space Center. NOAA’s Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES) constantly monitor weather across the Western Hemisphere, as well as weather in space caused by activity from our Sun.
