Page 1 of 1 not returning SST files

I am having some issues getting non NRT SST files with
Trying to retrieve AQUA_MODIS SST, for example on Jan 8, 2020, but only returns NRT files.

When I look into the MODIS-Aqua folder on that date I can see files like this that never show up when I use the above method.

So I am wondering if I am I doing something wrong.
Please advise.

You aren't doing anything wrong.  The issue stems from trying to keep a 20+ year old web service humming along as the world changes around it :grin:
When the NRT data are replaced by the refined data, they don't get deleted right away.  The L1/2 browser will only display one of them, and was preferentially selecting the NRT version.
We've corrected that (hopefully), but discovered that a couple month period this Spring has missing refined browse imagery on the external servers, which causes the L1/2 browser to not display the SST at all :eek:  We're in the process of whacking that mole, and hopefully all will be happy again soon.

The good news (I hope) is that we are  developing a new browser. The current one has had a good run, but it's time for a new one.   We'll see if we can make the new one not have the flaws of the old :wink:
