Lunar Roll Maneuver (-14.7483 degrees)
2012/042 21:54:16 ATC MOD_OA04_FR_NIGHT_RATE.1 (03:23 early)
2012/042 22:02:22-22:09:08 ATC MOD_OA08_ROLL_MAN.3
2012/042 22:50:18 ATC MOD_OA03_FR_DAY_RATE.2 (03:23 late)

The reflective solar bands (RSB) of Terra MODIS have experienced relatively large degradation in recent years. The current calibration algorithm used in deriving the Collection 5 LUTS does not completely capture and correct for this degradation, which is both wavelength and angle-of-incidence dependent. Science data products that utilize the shorter wavelength bands, especially Bands 8 (412 nm), 9 (443 nm) 3 (469 nm), 1 (646 nm), and 2 (856 nm) can expect to see an observable impact on data quality.
