Choose a spacecraft and enter a date range for a list of available orbits (data is available from 1987 to 2005):

First, Choose a DMSP Spacecraft:
F08 (0600-1800 LT Orbit)
F09 (1000-2200 LT Orbit)
F10 (0900-2100 LT Orbit)
F12 (0928-2128 LT Orbit)
F13 (0545-1745 LT Orbit)
F14 (0928-2128 LT Orbit)
(F14 data after 02-Sept-1999 are unreliable. More Details)
F15 (0928-2128 LT Orbit)

Second, enter a Start Date in one of the following formats:

            (YYDDD) , or
(Month-Day-Year) -- 
and then do one of the following:
  • Press submit for a list of the individual orbits available on that day.
  • Enter the number of days (up to 5) for which you desire a list of individual orbits.
