Rosetta Earth fly-by

Welcome to this collection of information relevant to the Rosetta Earth fly-by, 1-5 March 2005. This information has been collated especially for the Cluster and Double Star ground-based community, but hopefully will be of use to everyone.

Below can be found trajectory information, field line mapping, and assorted data sets. If you have anything else to contribute, please get in touch with me here.
