Pioneer 10 Orbit Diagram
This 3d orbit diagram is a feature of our 3D Solar System Simulator and shows the orbit of Pioneer 10 with respect of the Sun and the orbits of the major planets. The position of Pioneer 10 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 Pioneer 10 from Earth
The following chart shows the distance of Pioneer 10 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 Pioneer 10 is also available as a real time updated value in the Live Position and Data Tracker.
