SolO orbit data plots
This repository contains scripts to create the Solar Orbiter orbit data plots, prepared by Johan von Forstner and Alexander Kollhoff.
The plotting style was inspired by a plot from McComas et al., 2019 (Figure 1) for Parker Solar Probe IS𐍈IS.
Plots can be produced in a plain matplotlib style (
'plain') or in a style that emulates
the ESA press release version of this plot
'esa'). For the latter, the
NotesEsa font needs to be installed, which can be found in the
- Python >= 3.7
- SolO Loader for loading the Solar Orbiter data
- ET SPICE for accessing the SPICE kernels to get the orbit data
- matplotlib for plotting
