Voyager 1 Sky Charts and Coordinates
This is a simplified sky chart, showing where Voyager 1 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.
Voyager 1 Rise and Set Times
Today's Voyager 1 rise, transit and set times from Greenwich, United Kingdom [change]. All times are relative to the Europe/London timezone.
Voyager 1 Orbit Diagram
This 3d orbit diagram is a feature of our 3D Solar System Simulator and shows the orbit of Voyager 1 with respect of the Sun and the orbits of the major planets. The position of Voyager 1 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 Voyager 1 from Earth
The following chart shows the distance of Voyager 1 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 Voyager 1 is also available as a real time updated value in the Live Position and Data Tracker.
