Eyes on the Solar System is JPLs cool new tool for we 'armchair explorers' to use and follow spacecraft as they explore space.
Check it out here.

As Doug said: ...go find the NEAR mission and watch it's orbital phase with Eros.... see the Pioneer 11 flyby of Jupiter, and go 'OMFG' at the Ulysses trajectory. There's a million things we're still trying to put into it - chances are any suggestions someone might have, we've already got it on a very very unfunded list of 'love to put in...' - but make suggestions

So go for it. Try it out and if you have some cool ideas, leave a message here.

Just for the record - Eyes on the Solar System uses the very same spice kernels, and doesn't use flash.
