VIIRS HDF5 Data from NOAA's CLASS

I have been downloading VIIRS HDF5 data from NOAA's CLASS repository and the files are not correctly displayed in ArcMAP 10.1. In one instance, I overlaid a top of atmosphere NDVI map of California over a polygon dataset of countries that I trust. Even though both datasets are Geographic (WGS'84), the VIIRS EDR map appeared over Turkmenistan. In more detail, a map whose most western extent was about -130 E (or 130 W) became 50 E instead. (It happened other times and always added up to just about 180. It usually isn't exactly 180, which might just be rounding/estimation.)

Have other people experienced this? Does someone have an explanation, and how about a solution too?

Thnaks.
