Terra MODIS experienced a data corruption issue stemming from the Science Formatter Equipment (SFE) Assembly. Terra FOT cycled the formatter and MODIS science data acquisition resumed as expected. Data is unavailable for day 2017/114 (04/25/2017) from 03:44:03 - 19:44:58. Similar anomalies have occurred previously.
