This page contains magnetic connection predictions for Solar Orbiter and Parker Solar Probe. Currently these span from the launch of Parker Solar Probe to today + 14 days.

They assume a solar wind speed of 350 km/s, down to a source surface at 2.5 solar radii. Below that the trajectory is traced through a PFSS model based on a GONG synoptic magnetogram. I hope to update the movie on a daily basis with new GONG magnetographs and AIA images.

The movie is released under a CC-BY license, which means you can share and adapt it as much as you like, as long as you credit me as the original author.
