A dramatically detailed animation from the new GOES-16 satellite shows Hurricane Dora swirling in the Pacific

Dora is the Western Hemisphere’s 1st hurricane-strength storm of 2017

Click on the screenshot above and say hello to Dora, the first storm of 2017 in the Western Hemisphere to reach hurricane strength.

The imagery that went into the animation comes from NOAA’s new GOES-16 weather satellite. This is the first hurricane that the satellite has tracked since it was launched in November of 2016.

As I’m writing this late on the afternoon of Monday, June 26th, Dora is a Category 1 hurricane
