Interplanetary Phase Preview

This interactive 3D tool, shows where the European Space Agency's JUICE spacecraft is on any given day from its expected launch in September 2022 to just beyond the end of its cruise phase end in July 2031 to reach the Jovian system. You can watch the entire journey play through or to get the spacecraft’s current position. The information returned tells you how far JUICE (red track) is from the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Earth and the accumulated distance on its journey.

 Disclaimer: distances are based on the best values available at the time of preparing this tool and with respect to the center of the planets, but users should be aware that this is not a scientific tool. Note that the proportions and appearances of the planets and JUICE are not true representations, and no indication is given about the planet rotations. Recommended browsers: Chrome & FireFox.
