19-Apr-99 | Delta flight 268 – Landsat-7

Landsat-7 lifted off aboard its Delta 7920 at the very opening of its first launch window on Thursday, 15 April, at 18:32:00.288 UTC. The spacecraft was placed successfully into its proper orbit and is in excellent health. The next few weeks will be spent on systems checkout and calibration. The Landsat program, frequently referred to as “the central pillar of the national remote sensing capability,” has been continuously providing Earth images in visible and infrared wavelengths since 1972.
