A little question about SOHO satellite
« on: 05/11/2017 01:02 PM »
I'm working with images from LASCO C3 coronagraph

I'm able to download pictures from LASCO C3 using this form https://sohodata.nascom.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/data_query

Then, i want to do some analysis of CMEs on this pictures and determine some of their parameters, such as direction and speed (i know that is better to use STEREO A\B for that purposes), but also i need exact coordinates of SOHO station to determine the direction of the ejection in space

How can I get the coordinates of the station for these pictures?
I will be happy with any comment and help

PS:I started studying CMEs, but I'm just starting - so I apologize for the stupid questions  ::)
PSS: Maybe I created a topic in the wrong section

You might want to check the Orbit and Attitude files in https://sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov/data/ancillary/
