Solar Orbiter Flyby

On November 27 2021, the interplanetary probe Solar Orbiter will fly past the Earth. The Earth will give it a "gravity assist" and put it on a trajectory to reach Venus where it will receive a further assist. If you know where to look and live in the right part of the world, you will have a chance to see it through binoculars or a telescope.
