GOES West (GOES-17) Images and loops

** NOTE ** As a result of the Loop Heat Pipe Issue on GOES-17, imagery for some IR bands (7-16) between 0830 UTC and 1730 UTC, at some times of the year, will be bad. The symptoms of this can be rapid changes in observed IR Brightness temperature, horizontal striping, or a complete lack of image. See this link for details
