Hello. Approximately from January 14 modis_L1A.py began to return error 36. LogStatus contains the following message: ------------ get_pcf_config_data():MODIS_E_UTC_TO_TAI_FAILED:286764594 PGS_TD_UTCtoTAI returned a non-success message Unable to convert UTC time to TAI representation: 2021-01-15T02:44:50.000000Zcould not be converted
initialize_level1a():MODIS_F_NO_PCF_CONFIG_DATA:286765122 All configuration data could not be retrieved from the PCF file: error occured in trying to get PCF config data values Granule Length or Scan Rate -------------
What could be the problem? Or is it a bug in modis_L1A.py?

The issue is unrelated to the planetary ephemeris, but *may* be related to an out of date leapsec.dat (or utcpole.dat) file. I cannot be sure, as I could not replicate the problem. I was able to successfully process the PDS file you made available on your FTP site. Try running update_luts.py
