Update #1:Restoration of the MODIS data system has been completed.  All MODIS (both AQUA and TERRA) data products should now be available.

Topic: MODIS Outage

Date/Time Issued: December 07, 2020  0156Z

Product(s) or Data Impacted: All MODIS products from both TERRA and AQUA satellites

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

Date/Time of Expected End: December 7, 2020  0125Z

Length of Outage:  Approximately 145 hours and  25 minutes

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: "lance.nasa.gov".
