The following chart shows the distance of Maven from Earth as a function of time. In the chart the distance data is measured in Astronomical Units and sampled with an interval of 1 day.
The value of the reported distance might be somewhat inaccurate around the times of closest approach for objects passing extremely close to Earth. The value of the distance of Maven from Earth is also available as a real time updated value in the Live Position and Data Tracker.
Closest approach of Maven to Earth
Between November 2013 and January 2020 the closest approach of Maven to Earth happens on Tue Nov 19 2013 at a distance of 0.00062813 Astronomical Units, or 93,967 kilometers:
NOTE: values for the closest approach are computed with a sampling interval of 1 day.
Maven rise and set times
The rise and set times are defined as the time at which the upper limb of Maven touches the horizon, considering the effect of the atmospheric refraction. As the atmospheric conditions cannot be modeled precisely the times reported here should be considered correct with an approximation of few minutes.
