September 9, 2010 -- The observed electron values for the Relativistic Electron Forecast Model are now plotted for the GOES-13 satellite.  GOES-13 is designated as GOES-East, located at 105 degrees W longitude, is in the best position for observing relativistic electrons.  Previously, GOES-11 electron data was used, but since that is now in the designated West location, it is no longer the best option for providing the necessary data.
