Update: Terra Satellite Constellation Exit Maneuvers

The Terra satellite successfully completed its Constellation Exit Maneuvers (CEM) on October 12 and 19, 2022.  The instruments have since returned to a nominal state and data processing and distribution resumed as of October 24.  Please note that there is a gap in coverage between October 10, 2022 and October 23, 2022 during which the satellite exercises and subsequent stabilization and Post-CEM calibrations took place.

Please note that the CEM does not indicate the end of life for the Terra mission, but it does represent a change in orbital positioning. Users who are interested in knowing more about the Terra morning constellation exit can refer to this note.
