A Press Release About An Image You Can't See

NASA and NOAA's GOES-14 Satellite Takes First Full Disk Image

"The latest Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite, GOES-14, provided its first visible full disk image of Earth on July 27, at 2:00 p.m. EDT. The prime instrument on GOES, called the Imager, is taking images of Earth with a 1 kilometer (km) or 0.62 mile resolution from an altitude of 36,000 km (22,240 miles) above Earths surface, equivalent to taking a picture of a dime from a distance of seven football fields."

Keith's note: This press release - a release that announces an image - contains five web addresses that readers are supposed to visit. At the time I am posting this, none of those 5 web addresses has the image that this press release is announcing. So .... why issue the release?

Keith's update: According to NASA PAO someone had a web problem. The image is now online here.
