THEMIS ASI Ground Station Array

This visualization shows the 20 THEMIS ASI ground station locations. These ground stations will assist the THEMIS satellite constellation in measuring the Aurora Borealis over North America. Each ground station has an all-sky imaging white-light auroral camera and a magnetometer. The ground stations' radial coverage is rendered at 540 km. An artist's conception of an aurora is added to the second part of the visualization for context.
