Important notice about STEREO Behind
STEREO In-Situ and Radio Space Weather Beacon Data
Shown here are plots of the latest in-situ particle and fields data from the
STEREO IMPACT and PLASTIC instruments, and radio data from SWAVES. The
STEREO space weather beacon telemetry mode is a very low rate, highly
compressed data stream broadcast by the spacecraft 24 hours per day. These
data are used for space weather forecasting. Because the data are produced
in real-time, the calibrations may not match those used for the final data

Radial-Tangential-Normal (RTN) coordinates are defined such that
the +X axis points from sun center through the satellite (radial), and
the +Z axis points along the projection of the solar North pole (normal).
The +Y axis completes the right-handed coordinate system, and points
towards the solar West limb (tangential).
The data on this page include telemetry collected by the following
