This digital animation of the 2009 Atlantic hurricane season displays NOAA's NCEP half-hourly compilation of infrared cloud imagery over hurricane alley from the geosynchronous weather satellites, principally from NOAA's GOES-12 at 75W. The original cloud imagery was remapped to a rectangular latitude-longitude grid at 4 km spatial resolution and enhanced to display cloudtop texture. The GOES cloud images were overlaid on a true-color "Blue Marble" digital background map previously derived from the MODIS imager on NASA's Earth Observing System (EOS) of satellites. There are brief outages in the time-series, principally when the GOES satellite shuts down as it passes through the Earth's shadow for an hour each day around 0500 UTC in September-October, just before dawn on the US East Coast.
