Landsat 7 Maneuver to Return to WRS

Landsat 7 Maneuver to Return to WRS

Source: USGS Landsat Project
Landsat 7 maneuvered away from a piece of space debris in mid-April, which meant that some data are outside of the Worldwide Reference System. On Tuesday, May 15, the USGS Flight Operations Team will execute a maneuver that over several weeks will gradually bring Landsat 7 back into the correct orbit. There will be no new acquisitions from Tuesday May 15, through mid-day Wednesday May 16, 2012.
