STEREO Spacecraft Orbits and Comets

The above plot is a static view of the orbit display JAVA script. You can visualize the locations of the STEREO spacecraft, in the context of the orbits of planets in our solar system together with a cometary orbit. You need to select which cometary orbit you'd like by clicking on one of the links below this message. This will bring up the script to display the orbits and the control widgets to zoom in, rotate the perspective and look forward/backward in time.

You need to have JAVA enabled on your browser.
