The A-train will consist of 5 satellites, NASA's Aqua, Aura, CloudSat and CALIPSO satellites and the French space agency's PARASOL satellite. The satellites fly close together giving coordinated observations of Earth and its atmosphere. They pass over the equator in the early afternoon. The CloudSat and CALIPSO satellites will be launched on 25 April 2006.
