GOES-13 IR image

05 January 2007 was the final day of the GOES-13 Post-Launch NOAA Science Test; following the final image at 09:45 UTC (above), the satellite was placed into on-orbit storage until it is needed to replace one of the other operational GOES. This also marked the final opportunity to view the western hemisphere using imagery from 4 different GOES perspectives (below).
