Solar Orbiter Flyby Finder Chart

You can use this sky chart and table of positions to help you observe Solar Orbiter. The chart shows the position at the specified central time and clicking on the chart will give a more detailed view. The table below the chart lists the position and magnitude of the spacecraft at one minute intervals. The initial time is set close to the time of closest approach and you will probably have to adjust it to the best viewing time for your location - check the altitude and brightness in the table to find a suitable time.

Central time for sky chart and table

 Year Month Day Time      

Time period to extend table and track either side of central time minutes. (max. 60)

There is no finder chart because the spacecraft is below the horizon at the selected time.
