Remote sensing satellites in sun synchronous, polar orbits normally make a pass over a particular stripe of the earth every two to three weeks for non-angled passive imaging. The multi-week interval between images termed temporal dislocation. It's pretty common to have too much cloud cover for good imagery at a particular spot for a substantial percentage of passes.
