About Band 3
0.86 µm - "Veggie" Band - 1 km resolution - Combining band 3 (a near-infrared or "reflective" band), along with the 0.64 µm ("red") ABI Band 2, will be used for detecting daytime clouds, fog, and aerosols and for calculating a normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), hence its nickname the "veggie" band.
Band 3 is a visible channel and is therefore black during nighttime hours.
