Date/Time of Initial Impact:  October 29, 2020 20:13:11Z

Date/Time of Expected End:  TBD     
Length of Event:  Any impact to products would be 30 minutes before and up to 2 hours following the maneuver.

Details/Specifics of Change:  A Jason-3 maneuver is scheduled for 29-October-2020 starting at 20:13:11 Z. There will be an expected change of +6 m (TBC) in the semi-major axis possibly resulting in large radial orbit errors in the OGDRs. Over any ocean points, this will affect the sea surface height, but not the wind and wave content in the products.
