Two acquisition days of SPOT (Take5) were lost

The programming of the 2nd and 3rd of August acquisitions failed for a complex reason which is now understood, and should not happen again. Please remember that the programming is done fully manually, as SPOT5 is not on its nominal orbit and that it requires a lot of work from the teams at CNES to program 150 images every 5 days..

As a result, no data were acquired from the 01/08/2015, 21:2 :22 to the  03/08/2015, 22:25:44. The missing data correspond to the days 2 and 3 of SPOT5 (Take5) cycle. We are very sorry for those of you who counted on these data and who did in situ measurements on these days.
