Simulated ribbon centers for the slow (top left), intermediate (top right), and fast (bottom left) SW, and combined over all energies (bottom right). The simulation results are shown in open symbols, and the IBEX ribbon centers from Funsten et al. (2013) are shown in filled symbols, with the weighted centers (over energy and fit) shown in black symbols in the top row and bottom-left panel. In the bottom-right panel, the results are weighted over both circular and elliptical fits as well as energy. The interstellar field direction in the simulation overlaps the IBEX ribbon weighted center (black circle). We also show the BV plane as a black dashed curve, assuming the pristine interstellar magnetic field is nearly aligned with the IBEX ribbon center (219.2°, 39.9°; Funsten et al. 2013).
