Play the Slyder game with these pictures of Earth weather and space weather.

Hurricane Katrina as seen by GOES.Satellites high above the Earth give a very different view of the weather. These pictures are also beautiful and dramatic. But they contain valuable information as well. For example, satellite pictures of a storm forming out in the ocean show how strong the storm is, which way it is moving, how fast it is moving, and whether people living along the shore should be warned to get out of its way.

The GOES are satellites that help forecast the weather on earth. They also help forecast space weather. Find out more about hurricanes and how GOES tracks them.
