WHERE ARE VOYAGER 1 and 2 RIGHT NOW?


Image Credits: NASA/JPL Solar System Simulator developed by: David Seal

UPPER IMAGE (Voyager 1):  Field of View (FOV):  45°;  Magnification:  0.67x
LOWER IMAGE (Voyager 2):  Field of View (FOV):  60°;  Magnification:  0.5x

NOTE: Voyager 1 is currently headed generally toward the constellation Ophiuchus, its path inclined more than 30° "upward" relative to the Ecliptic.  Voyager 2 is currently headed generally toward the constellation Telescopium, its path inclined more than 30° "downward" (i.e. -30°) relative to the Ecliptic.

Simulator Image Notes:  1) Fields of View are measured horizontally.  2) View is from "above" the Solar System, oriented so that the spacecraft is centered and the Sun appears in the 12:00 midnight direction.  3) Light-Travel Time is not included in calculated times.
