The Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer, one of five science instruments aboard NASA's Terra spacecraft, was launched into earth orbit in December 1999. Acquisition of earth imagery began in February 2000, and the quality of the data is excellent. Overall, MISR has been performing superbly, though the instrument exhibits several idiosyncrasies, some of which were anticipated prior to launch. Details regarding the in-flight performance of the instrument system are presented.
