It’s tax day.    April 15th also happens to be the anniversary of Landsat 7.

The satellite has been in orbit for 15 years.  It’s in the sky alongside the newer model Landsat 8, now aloft for about a year.

You may not know it, but these satellites are playing an increasing role in our everyday lives.
