Can I get the acquisition time of OrthoTiles?

Q: Is there a way to get the acquisition time for a PlanetScope OrthoTile? The filename of these assets only contains the acquisition date but not the exact time.


A: Since OrthoTiles are a derived product from a set of consecutive PlanetScope scenes within a strip (usually 4 to 5 scenes), there is no specific acquisition time that could be determined for the whole OrthoTile - as it has 4-5 acquisition times within one.

The acquisition time are only noted in the filenames of PlanetScope Scenes.
