    Hi Kelsee,

    Do you have the image ID for this scene? I'd be happy to look into this a bit closer to find out exactly what is causing these sensor artefacts.

    Hi Seth,

    Sorry I should have included that in the original post, it is: 20191118_013254_54_106d_3B_AnalyticMS

    The area is just south of Wooroonooran National Park, near Cairns, Australia.

    Thank you for the image ID. It appears the blue artefacts in the image are caused by saturated pixels. We are aware of this, and are continually working to improve image accuracy. I can see imagery from multiple dates over the same area that do not have this blue artefact, and anticipate many clear captures over this area of interest in the future. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to
