Terra spacecraft entered safe mode (2016/049: 14:33:17) during an IAM. This caused MODIS to enter safe mode as well. The nadir and the space-view doors are closed as expected. The solar diffuser door is still open (since the anomaly from July, 2003). Updates will be posted periodically.
The presentations from the MODIS Science Team Meeting, May-2015 are available at the following location: http://modis.gsfc.nasa.gov/sci_team/meetings/201505/index.php
Terra experienced an anomaly for B36/D7 beginning on 2015092.1740. After 2 weeks continually being in the anomaly state, the decision was made to change the QA flag for this detector from 'Noisy' to 'Inoperable'. All Band 36 detectors are currently flagged as Noisy.
The MODIS and VIIRS Science Team Meeting will be held May 18-May 22, 2015 at the Sheraton Silver Spring Hotel in Silver Spring, MD. Information regarding registration, logistics, and agendas is now available here: https://www.signup4.net/Public/ap.aspx?EID=MODI27E
