GALEX Angle Calculator

The GALEX Angle Calculator computes the angle between a celestial position and one of a list of alternative "Reference Bodies". The angles are plotted as a function of time and during the eclipse portion of the orbit only. The list of "Reference Bodies" includes bright solar system objects which must be avoided by a specified minimum angle during GALEX observations.
