Current Satellite Imagery for Mauna Kea, Hawaii, and the Pacific Ocean
Please Note: As of March 2, 2020, we will begin transitioning to the GOES-16/17, which has a higher spatial and temporal resolution as well as more channels, but requires a nearly complete overhaul of the satellite products and web page. Expect some bugs, faulty images and/or abrupt changes in the process. We apologize for any inconvience this may cause.
