On March 1, 2022, the United States launched its latest weather satellite, called GOES-T! GOES is short for Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite. GOES-T is part of a group of NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) satellites that keep an eye on Earth’s weather from space.

Why do we need these weather satellites? The information they collect is used in many ways! In fact, if you’ve ever checked a weather forecast on a phone, computer or television, you’ve used information collected by one of GOES-T’s satellite sisters.
See what kids around the world think GOES-T will observe where they live! Check out these selections from the January 2022 NASA Space Place Art Challenge:
