The Terra satellite is scheduled to exit the “Morning Constellation” of the Earth Observing System (EOS) satellite program in October 2022. The initial Terra Constellation Exit Maneuver (CEM) is scheduled for 12 October 2022 around 7:30AM EDT and 19 October 2022. All Science and Near Real-Time (NRT) data will not be acquired starting 10 October 2022 until 19 October 2022. Post-CEM, more time will be needed to bring all Terra instruments back up to their nominal states and necessary calibrations and Lookup Table (LUT) updates will occur as needed. Users should exercise caution while using Terra data between 19 - 21 26 October as all instruments will still be recovering, after the outage. This will impact all sensors aboard Terra including MODIS, MISR, MOPITT, ASTER, and CERES.
