MODIS Aqua missing dates 2020

by jcfischer » Mon Jan 04, 2021 9:03 am America/New_York

Hi, does anyone know why there is no MODIS Aqua data available for the period from 2020-08-17 unit 2020-09-02 (17th of August 2020 until 2nd September 2020). I am aware of the information on MODIS/Aqua Data Outages presented here https://modaps.modaps.eosdis.nasa.gov/services/production/outages_aqua.html but this does not explain the lack of a full 17-days period. Those days cannot be displayed (selected) for preview in the Level 1&2 Browser.
Why are no satellite imagery information available to download in this period? Might this be a problem with the Level 1&2 Browser for download and are there any alternative ways to access those files?
Thanks a lot!

This problem was noted here:  https://landweb.modaps.eosdis.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/NRT/displayCase.cgi?esdt=MYD&caseNum=PM_MYD_20229_NRT&caseLocation=cases_data&

They were planning on reconstructing the missing data from direct broadcast, but I don't know that status.  There have been no other updates of which I'm aware.
