New Horizons Sky Charts and Coordinates
This is a simplified sky chart, showing where New Horizons is now with respect to the brightest stars and constellations.
More advanced sky charts are available on TheSkyLive for this object: 1) the Online Planetarium which is interactive and allows to select dates and additional objects to visualize; and 2) the Live Position and Data Tracker which provides the highest precision position data and features deep sky imagery from the Digitized Sky Survey.

New Horizons Orbit Diagram
This 3d orbit diagram is a feature of our 3D Solar System Simulator and shows the orbit of New Horizons with respect of the Sun and the orbits of the major planets. The position of New Horizons and the planets along their orbits in this diagram accurately represents the current configuration of the objects in the Solar System. This is an experimental feature and it requires a WebGL enabled browser. Please provide us feedback!

Distance of New Horizons from Earth
The following chart shows the distance of New Horizons from Earth as a function of time. Distance data is measured in Astronomical Units and sampled with a 2 days interval.
The reported distances might be inaccurate around the times of closest approach for objects passing extremely close to Earth. The value of the distance of New Horizons is also available as a real time updated value in the Live Position and Data Tracker.
