Impact parameters between Moon and several objects (Earth,IMP,Wind,ACE,Geotail)

This interface provides access to hourly resolution "impact parameters" for pairs of Moon and IMP 8, Wind, ACE Geotail and Earth. These are the distances by which a plasma element moving radially away from the sun with a speed of 390 km/s, observed at an upstream spacecraft would miss intercepting a downstream spacecraft (or Earth), allowing for the 30 km/s motion of the Earth and its nearby spacecraft about the sun. Dij, the impact parameter for the i-j pair of bodies, is given by SQRT {[Yi-Yj + (Xi-Xj)/13]**2 + (Zi-Zj)**2}. For a schematic figure and further description click HERE.
