"Where is MESSENGER?" is a longtime section on our website, but last week this feature got an added capability. Using the new global mosaic of Mercury, the feature now shows two views of the spacecraft's ground track: one with a 10.5° field of view like the Wide Angle Camera (middle of top row) and one with a 1.5° field of view like the Narrow Angle Camera (right corner of top row). The "Where is MESSENGER?" section of the website updates every five minutes and was used to generate portions of this movie.
