The agency's "GOES-16" satellite, lifted-off from Cape Canaveral on November 19th.
Its first images of Earth's Western Hemisphere were just released Monday.

At four times the image resolution of the existing "GOES" spacecraft, it's like high-definition from the heavens.
The GOES-16 should help forecasters predict the weather with better accuracy.
