Is the other name for GOES-U GOES-19?

Yep; from the mission overview:

Quote

GOES-U will be renamed GOES-19 after it reaches geostationary orbit. Following a successful on-orbit checkout of its instruments and systems, NOAA plans to put GOES-19 into operational service, replacing GOES-16 as GOES East. GOES-19 will work in tandem with GOES-18, NOAA’s GOES West satellite.

It's gone alphabetically from GOES-R as GOES-16, constituting the GOES-R series, which is now complete, and which marks the end of the entire GOES series as a whole. The next series of satellites will apparently be GeoXO.

Lots of new toys on board - can’t wait to see how it changes current standards!

The coronagraph is definitely what I'm most excited about, can't wait until we get imagery from it.

There's a brief discussion about it at 5:31:30 in the stream Misaka linked to for anyone interested.

What improvement do you expect? I mean how many years of technology is between both satellites... Could it be such a big step like Hubble and JWST? I'm so excited.

The best change is not the imagery itself but the availability. 30 mins instead of 8-48h from Lasco.

Thanks for posting that @Adrian Kobyłecki   With any luck we will should be into the period where geomagnetic influences are climbing and exercising our magnetometers too. 😇 Mike
