People like to look at clouds and notice funny figures in them. Last Friday, a meteorological satellite of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) was observing the lower layers of the atmosphere and noticed a giant letter G in a cloud formation off the coast of Chile. The NOAA Satellites Twitter account shared a seven-hour time-lapse video of the letter G taking shape as seen by the GOES-East satellite.
Then NOAA zoomed in on the resulting image and found a circular formation next to the letter G, suggesting that the clouds formed the word Go.
Good afternoon Good people of Gorgeous Earth!
On Friday, many people were excited to see a giant letter “G” appear in the clouds off the coast of Chile. Thus, for #TimelapseTuesday, we thought it would be fun to show an extended 7-hour loop of the formation via #GOESEast. 😍 pic.twitter.com/5xOTEYwBGK

What does it mean? Is our planet trying to tell us something? Of course, the pattern turned out to be just a funny coincidence, but we can let imagination take over. We like to think that this is some kind of message from Earth to humanity, or even a call to action, if you look at the word Go. In any case, if you need a sign, then consider that even the Earth has already informed you of it.

GOES-East is an important satellite for monitoring weather, solar activity and climatic conditions. Moreover, this is not the first device in the NOAA space flotilla. Before it there were GOES-18, GOES-17, GOES-16. NOAA said the GOES series of satellites changed the world of environmental monitoring forever and made a huge contribution to climatology.
Recall that earlier the mysterious entrance to the cave on Mars excited the public.
