Event Name:
L1: STK Christmas Special: When can I see Santa?
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. (ET)
Every year AGI assists NORAD in tracking Santa as he delivers presents across the globe. This class will teach you how to figure out when you can see Santa from your front porch using a predicted flight path in STK. Astronomers and Engineers across the globe have detected Santa in the past, so we have an idea of where he will be and when. From that information we've created an approximate flight path, so we know when and where to expect him. Keep in mind though, Santa’s actual flight may change on Christmas Eve due to weather, or Rudolph’s mood!

Upon completion of this class you will understand how to:
  • Create a place object using your address to model your house
  • Load an external ephemeris file to design a route
  • Change a model file
  • Compute line of sight between two objects to determine when and where you can view something

  • Comments:
