GOES-16 Lightning Mapper- the Youtube video in the article shows Valentines Day storms over SE TX, at 25 frames per second - incredible

NOAA’s satellites are the backbone of its life-saving weather forecasts. GOES-16 will build upon and extend the more than 40-year legacy of satellite observations from NOAA that the American public has come to rely upon.
