Eclipse periods

David J Taylor
 

Will MSG-1 have eclipse periods like other geostationary satellites,
when there is not enough power to keep the electronics fully
running? I am presuming so, but have seen no announcement as yet.
I also asusme that at some point there will be periods where the
imager will be switched off to avoid looking at the sun.

I see this will start soon on GOES and Meteosat 7.

Cheers,
David
