The image shows the positions of the 6 currently operational NIMS satellites (3023-3025-3027-3029-3031-3032) centred on 0° longitude.
The UK (3 sites) and Arctic (4 sites) tomography receiving locations are shown in RED.
The white circle for a satellite indicates it is within or above 10° of the horizon at Aberystwyth, UK.
This image was made using PREDICT and XPLANET and EARTHTRACK2 software.
Many thanks to those involved in developing these extremely useful packages.
