GOES-8 3.9 Micron Shortwave IR Comparison

This 2-image Java applet may take a minute or so to load...

Hold any mouse button down as you move the cursor over the large 3.9 micron IR image (16 March 1998, 20:45 UTC). The smaller inset window shows the 3.9 micron IR image from the previous day (15 March 1998, 20:45 UTC). Note that the location and size of many of the fire hot spots (dark pixels) changes between the 2 days.
