December 5, drag makeup maneuver went nominally.
December 15 MODIS roll maneuver to –6.656 deg.

MODIS Anomalies:

No formatter anomalies have been detected since switching to B-side science operations. The MODIS IOT is continuing to monitor changes with the radiative cooler temperatures and focal plane power.

General Instrument Comments:

MODIS is in Science Mode on the B-side with the SVD and NAD open, operating with the Formatter Resolution Flight Software Patches (FRFSP). No new events have been witnessed by the FRFSP since the B-Side Transition on DOY 2000/304.

MODIS Telemetry Trends:

The Radiative Cooler intermediate stage temperature has slowly been increasing since approximately DOY 2000/240. During this time the LWIR focal plane heater margin has been decreasing. The IOT is continuing to trend these telemetry mnemonics.

Non-MODIS Significant Events:
