Updates once daily until eclipse day, then about every hour.
Explanation of channels:
|VIS||0.55-0.80u||Visible light channel, only works in daytime. Highest resolution and best indicator of clouds that could obscure a view of the eclipse.|
|IR1||10.3-11.3u||Day/Night thermal infrared, whiter indicates colder, thicker clouds.|
|IR4||3.5-4.0u||Shows low level clouds/fog and surface. Clouds may appear white or black depending on thickness and time of day. Small stationary "splotches" are urban heat islands.|
|IR3||6.5-7.0u||Water vapor: Shows distribution of water vapor, generally from higher altitudes in the atmosphere.|
