The WW2010 Project from the University of Illinois provides imagery from the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites, or GOES. However, the WW2010 images are a combination of images from two satellites, GOES-East and GOES-West. The image shows the continental United States as it would appear from directly overhead. Images of all of North America, the Pacific Ocean or the Atlantic Ocean may also be selected.

The WW2010 Satellite Products Web page shows current thumbnail images of the three common types of GOES images: infrared light images, enhanced infrared light images and visible light images. Water vapor images are also available. To see a larger image, click on the thumbnail of choice. Each image has a tutorial associated with it from the "Help" button. The Enhanced Infrared Imagery for June 25, 2007, is provided below as an example. The navigation buttons along the bottom are very helpful. Move the curser over the numbered buttons to find out more about that portion of the image.
