Description

This description was generated automatically using input from the Planetary Data System.

This dataset contains Voyager 2 position vectors relative to the Sun in both cartesian and spherical Heliographic coordinates for the time when Voyager 2 was near Uranus but not within its magnetosphere. The position vectors are given every 48 seconds. The units of the vector components are Au and degrees. Vectors are stored as 4-byte floating point values. The Heliographic coordinate system is defined in the reference epoch of 1950. The unit vectors which define the coordinate system are as follows: X points away from the Sun towards the ascending node, in the solar equatorial plane, Z points along the Sun's spin axis, positive above the equatorial plane, and Y completes the right handed set.

These data are available on-line from the Planetary Data System (PDS) at:
