Version 188.8.131.52 is now in the download slot.
NOAA already changed their file name indexing by 1 minute. Not a big deal but enough to keep the app from working. Made an algorithm to hopefully account for those minor changes, we’ll see..
The Viewer is used to collect and display the image files provided by NOAA. You can view the entire continental US or its regions with an initial time span of the last 2 to 8 hours. New images will download with time every 5 minutes and will continue to download new images every 5 minutes until the program is terminated. I particularly enjoy the CONUS GeoColor view when it loops through the night time period. You can see the lights of the major cities throughout the US if there is sparse cloud cover.
