New Horizons Web Site

The computer-generated images below are simulated views of New Horizons' location in the solar system.

The images were created using the Satellite Tool Kit (STK) software, which was developed by Analytical Graphics, Inc. Images are updated every hour.

Click here to follow New Horizons as it passes each planet's orbit, starting with our own Moon.

This image shows New Horizons' current position.

The green segment of the line shows where New Horizons has traveled since launch; the red indicates the spacecraft's path toward Jupiter, Pluto and beyond.

Positions of stars with magnitude 12 or brighter are shown from this perspective, which is above the Sun and "north" of Earth's orbit.
