# How can we track where DSCOVR is now?

Celestia supports importing spacecraft data, but I didn't see any data for DSCOVR. Is there any way to see where it is now so we can track it on it's way to Sun-Earth L1?

• Tracking data can take a bit of time depending on the location of the tracking radar. I would expect something within a few days if not hours. – tl8 Feb 12 '15 at 2:14
• I couldn't even really find a planned trajectory for it anywhere, has anyone seen one? I'm assuming it's pretty much a direct flight, and no slingshots around the earth or moon, but I don't really know. – Ryan Caskey Feb 12 '15 at 2:25
• I have not seen one either. All I know is that it is long ~110 days – tl8 Feb 12 '15 at 2:26
• spaceflight101.com/dscovr.html This is about the bes. – tl8 Feb 12 '15 at 2:32
• I think the US Air Force requires that no attitude/orbit data be real time data for security reasons, but I am not sure about this... However, I doubt that an object near $L_{1}$ is in much danger of attack... – honeste_vivere Dec 10 '15 at 1:00

I suggest you take a look at my answer here: https://space.stackexchange.com/a/23743/21677

I made an app that interpolates EPIC images on a 3D globe, and also displays DSCOVR and its path at any time in the past 2 years since DSCOVR started its service. It's a web app, or a mobile app (Android+iOS) if you open this link from your phone or ablet. It's free and ad-free:
