Trajectory of Ulysses projected onto the solar surface, overlaid on
an soft X-ray image obtained by Yohkoh/SXT on August 26, 1992 (composite
image composed by J. Lemen). The points represent the intersection of
the line from Sun center to Ulysses with the photosphere of the visible
hemisphere of the Sun. Solid lines are for the front side, dotted lines
for the invisible hemisphere. Points are one month apart, starting with
the triangle at Jan. 1, 1993, and ending with the diamond at Jan. 1, 1997.
The actual point of origin of the solar-wind flow to Ulysses depends on
factors not included here, such as the solar wind velocity and the details
of the coronal magnetic structure (as revealed in the soft X-ray image).
