into a nearly perfect circular orbit Four and onehalf hours later the National Aeronautics and Space Admin istration here had received the first cloud cover pictures taken by the satellites television cam era from an altitude of more than 400 miles The satellite sent eight blanks after its first pass because it was tippe dat an angle when the photographs were taken The second time around it sent
