On Aug 16, 2020 the NASA Aqua satellite experienced an anomaly with the onboard Formatter-Multiplexer Unit (FMU) that has affected the real time processing streams for all Aqua instruments including for MODIS and the L2/L3 Sea Surface Temperature datasets distributed by the PO.DAAC.

The health/telemetry is being monitored by the Instrument Operations Team and a reset of the FMU is tentatively planned for Aug 28.
