We're DEFINITELY not looking at another ARG! Teh Mayan connection, I believe the map has Montana in it. (I'm terrible at Geography!) They HAVE TO be connected.

15goes12VIS is a codename for a NASA satellite image. I doubt it's a clue.

Credit goes to Aiobhan for this.

Look at the link I just posted I think it is very important. It has similar images to what we found and has the same letters and numbers on the bottom of the pics.

Tooman's image was cropped out of one of those, but I can't tell which one because only the clouds different.

It looks like the numbers at the bottom are dates but, they are dates that haven't happened yet!

I had no idea what GOES12 was, but found an article on Wikipedia about GOES (Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite). Basically, GOES seems to be a major part of US weather forecasting.
Quote:
GOES-12 is designated GOES-East, currently located at 75W over the Amazon River. It provides most of the U.S. weather information.

It seems to have something to do with the weather. Like a giant hurricane coming straight for us.

Yeah, judging the red cloud thing.
Also Iowa and Nebraska are centered....
