Launch of the Landsat 9 Earth-Observing Satellite


🚀 Watch the newest #Landsat satellite lift off! This joint NASA-U.S. Geological Survey mission will contribute to the longest data record of Earth’s landscapes taken from space. Landsat 9 continues the nearly 50-year legacy of the Landsat Program: observing our changing home planet, monitoring its land and coastal regions, helping us manage its essential resources, and providing free, publicly available images and data.

Landsat 9 will launch Mon., Sept. 27 at 2:12 p.m. EDT (18:12 UTC) aboard a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket from Space Launch Complex 3 at Vandenberg Space Force Base in California. Landsat 9 will join its sister satellite, Landsat 8, in orbit in collecting images from across the planet every eight days.
