We released a new version of NASA Worldview, version 3.5.0, yesterday and wanted to share the good news with you!

New features include a preview image and layer description when a layer search is conducted.
In this release, we have also added a new set of Fires and Thermal Anomalies layers (Day and Night) from the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on board the NOAA-20 (aka JPSS-1) satellite. This satellite crosses the equator 50 minutes prior to the Suomi National Polar orbiting Partnership (Suomi NPP) satellite, at approximately 12:40 PM (ascending/day node) and 12:40 AM (descending/night node). This means we now have four sets of Fires and Thermal Anomalies (Day and Night) layers - MODIS/Terra, MODIS/Aqua, VIIRS/Suomi NPP, and VIIRS/NOAA-20! Explore the Fires and Thermal Anomalies layer from VIIRS/NOAA-20 in NASA Worldview!
VIIRS/NOAA-20 Fires and Thermal Anomalies layers now available in Worldview.
