OSIRIS-REx Flyby Finder Chart

You can use this sky chart and table of positions to help you observe OSIRIS-REx. The chart shows the position at the specified central time and clicking on the chart will give a more detailed view. The table below the chart lists the position and magnitude of OSIRIS-REx at one minute intervals. The initial time is set close to the time of closest approach and you will probably have to adjust it to the best viewing time for your location - check the altitude and brightness in the table to find a suitable time.
