Date/Time of Initial Impact:  December 1, 2020  0000Z

Date/Time of Expected End: TBD

Length of Outage: TBD

Details/Specifics of Change: The MODIS data production system has experienced a failure of a central processing component.  We are continuing to work the issue.  However, it is likely that the outage will last several days, and perhaps longer.  There will be no valid MODIS data distributed for the duration.  

In the meantime, NASA provides an alternative source through their LANCE (Land, Atmosphere Near real-time Capability for EOS) system: "".
