Observations Around Solar System With Parker Solar Probe’s 7th Solar Encounter

During Parker Solar Probe’s seventh swing by the Sun, celestial geometry posed a special opportunity. The configuration of this particular orbit placed Parker Solar Probe on the same side of the Sun as Earth — meaning that Earth-bound observatories could observe the Sun and its outpouring of solar wind from the same perspective as Parker’s.
