OPTICAL TRANSIENT DETECTOR (OTD) LIGHTNING V1

Metadata Updated: August 9, 2018

The Optical Transient Detector (OTD) records optical measurements of global lightning events in the daytime and nighttime. The data includes individual point (lightning) data, satellite metadata, and several derived products. The OTD was launched on 3 April 1995 aboard the Microlab-1 satellite into a near polar orbit with an inclination of 70 degrees with respect to the equator, at an altitude of 740 km.
