Swift Detailed Visibility Calculator

This tool allows anyone to calculate detailed visibility for a single target for the near future. Note predictions more than 20 days in the future may be increasingly innaccurate due to the impact of drag on Swift's orbit. Please note that results here give possible observing windows only. Due to spacecraft restrictions, targets can only be observed for a maximum of 30 mins (1800 s) in any particular window. Results of this table are a guide only and must be verified by the Swift Science Operations Team before a target can be planned.

Note: All dates/times are Universal Time (UT).
