Landsat 7 Extended Science Mission Scenes

Detailed Description

Number of scenes acquired by the Landsat 7 Extended Science Mission from May 5, 2022 - January 19, 2024. 

The Landsat 7 satellite was launched in 1999, and data from the Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) sensor onboard acquired data on the World Reference System-2 (WRS-2) for over 20 years before being lowered from the standard 705 kilometers (km) orbit to 697 km in April of 2022. After Landsat 7 was lowered to 697 km and all systems were deemed nominal, the ETM+ resumed imaging on May 5, 2022.

As of January 19, 2024, Landsat 7 has suspended imaging - visit this News announcement to learn more. Over 240,000 Level-1 products have been created from the data acquired during the current duration of the extended science mission.
