Detailed Description

Number of scenes acquired by the Landsat 7 Extended Science Mission from May 5 - December 1, 2022. 

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.
