Here GOES Radiotelescope is a sculptural ground station that receives data from GOES-16, a NOAA weather satellite. Visitors can sit inside the sculpture to see real-time images of the Earth taken by the satellite, effectively seeing ourselves through GOES-16’s eyes, 22,000 miles away.
Watch time lapse animations using images received from GOES-16 at Here GOES Radiotelescope, with more projects coming soon.
Here GOES Radiotelescope resides at Wave Farm, in Acra, NY. The installation's sculptural components will be complete later this year (2020). Visitors to Wave Farm are welcome year-round by appointment.
