CONGRATULATIONS TO THE ENTIRE EO-1 TEAM ON A FLAWLESS LAUNCH AND EARLY ORBIT OPERATIONS!!!

EO-1 was launched on a Delta 7320-10 from Vandenberg Air Force Base on November 21, 2000. After deployment from the second stage of the Delta, EO-1 flew in a 705 km circular, sun-synchronous orbit at a 98.7 degree inclination. This orbit allowed EO-1 to match, within one minute, the Landsat 7 orbit and collect identical images for later comparison on the ground.
