Size/Distance on Jan 10, 2003
at Jan 13, 2003 Coordinates

At this time the Planet X body with close hugging debris and dust swirl are estimated to be on 01/15/03, appearing to be 4.91% of Jupiter visible size, at 14.05 billion miles. Naji has detailed the rapid movement across the sky day-to-day at this time, though the planet/comet complex is coming more dead-on in its motion than from size to side.

I have made marker points between the coordinates for each day in between. I used linear projection. Remember that there are 24 hours in a day and the images were taken on Jan 10, 6:54:41 AM UTC over the period of 54 minutes. I used the DSS2 Fits file because it has the coordinate set in the file.
