Up to the middle of November the Terra and Aqua MODIS sensors in are operating nominally.

As reported in August, the Aqua spacecraft has been going through a series of Inclination-Adjust Maneuvers (IAM) to maintain the 1:30 P.M. – 1:45 P.M. equator-crossing time specification. Various considerations have resulted in the rest of the IAM’s being delayed until the Spring of 2007.
