Important notice about STEREO Behind

PLASTIC suffered a background anomaly on Dec 5 2019 that affected the high voltages. Data through February 2019 are test scenarios. Data after February are at lower operational voltages than previously and are undergoing a revised calibration

Positions of STEREO A and B for 6-Jul-2020 09:00 UT

Plot of spacecraft positions

This figure plots the current positions of the STEREO Ahead (red) and Behind (blue) spacecraft relative to the Sun (yellow) and Earth (green). The dotted lines show the angular displacement from the Sun. Units are in A.U.

When the two spacecraft are close to Earth, an expanded view of the region around Earth will appear on the right, in the same orientation as the Sun-centered view.
