Solar Dynamics Observatory

Post #1by BrianJ » 11.02.2010, 23:41

To mark today's succesful launch of SDO, NASA's new solar observatory, here's a model and .ssc that put's it in it's "inclined geostationary" operational orbit, centered on the latitude of it's dedicated tracking stations at White Sands.

.zip file inc. .3ds, .jpg, .ssc and readme.txt - unzip into your Celestia/Extras/ folder

Thanks bh.

Of course, it might have been better if I'd given the add-on the correct orbital period - one sidereal day (not one solar day) :roll:
