Jason Danieli, left, reviews upload instructions for a weather satellite as fellow 6th Space Operations Squadron members organize data instruction uploads for other satellites April 3, 2014 at Schriever Air Force Base, Colo. The squadron's satellite vehicle operators assumed command of the nation's Defense Meteorological Satellite Program weather satellites from their National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration counterparts as the nation's newest weather satellite lifted into orbit aboard an Atlas V rocket at Vandenberg AFB, Calif. The squadron will oversee all weather satellite operations until April 7. Danieli is a satellite vehicle operator with the 6th SOPS. (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech. Sgt. Stephen J. Collier)
