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.
