Today Sept. 02, from slot 0800 onwards we have Eastern Europe back on
HRV !

Unfortunaley we had to trade in the western part of Africa now.

Makes one think Eumetsat has subscribed to a "Lite" ADSL line to T-
systems and have to watch their upload quota !

Image 0030 (ch01 to 03 and HRV) showed a severe sun glimpse again.
Interesting to see how a solair eqlips is seen by MSG-1, hope that it
won't damage the delicate SEVERI instrument !

Same here, Arne. I can't believe they would risk damage.

Did you notice the strange effects on the midnight images, where the
top 200 lines or so were misplaced, as if the scan position sensor
was being misled by solar radiation? They didn't show on the 0015
images, so weren't on the LRIT data. Quite noticeable effects on
the 0045 images, though, both visible and thermal channels, and both
HRIT and LRIT data.

Cheers,
David
