The VIIRS (Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite) instrument aboard the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) observed Typhoon Yutu around 1:30 pm local time from October 23 to 26, 2018. Ten thousand residents of Edenville and Sanford counties were ordered to evacuate the area. Related images: 720 x 480 PNG. Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership As of 5 p.m. On May 20, 2020, the VIIRS instrument, aboard both the Suomi-NPP (S-NPP) and NOAA-20 satellites, showed record flooding of the Tittabawassee River in the town of Midland, Michigan, due to the Edenville Dam failure the day before.

VIIRS is one of five instruments aboard the Suomi-NPP satellite, which was launched in October 2011. VIIRS is a scanning radiometer that collects visible and infrared imagery and radiometric measurements of the land, atmosphere, cryosphere, and oceans. Figure 1: Suomi-NPP VIIRS true color imagery from December 31st, 2019 (background) is overlaid with VIIRS “hot spot” data (red areas) showing fire locations, and OMPS Aerosol Index (orange areas) showing the transport of the smoke plume over the Tasmanian sea.

Suomi-NPP/VIIRS Sensor Summary The Visible and Infrared Imager/Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) is a multi-disciplinary instrument that is being flown on the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) series of spacecraft, including the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (S-NPP) that launched in October 2011. The VIIRS images revealed a cloud-filled eye. Taking Temperatures from ISS.
During nearly a year of flight testing on the space station, a new thermal infrared camera collected more than 15 million images. Date: 2020/146 - 05/25/2020 Date: Display false-color with true-color Display resolution list. Published April 7, 2020.
