Submission GOES-13 Weather Satellite Goes Dark-> 1

pengc99 writes: "The GOES-13 weather observation satellite ran into issues with increasing noise in it's imagery on Sunday, forcing engineers to shut it down and diagnose the problem. In the meantime polar orbiting satellites and GOES-15 are supplying the missing imagery, albeit at a much slower rate. GOES-14 is on standby to replace GOES-13 if required"
