[netCDF #OSE-887102]: Problem reading HDFEOS5 file using NetCDF 4.1.1 OPeNDAP interface.

> We have encountered a problem reading HDFEOS5 files using the NetCDF

Howdy Dave!

I will ask Dennis about the opendap question.

As you note, downloading this as netcdf seems to get a file without these weird 
names. Any chance we can get the original file?
