Fig. 3


Top two panels: magnetic field strength |B| and cone θc along the orbit of the tail excursion in cylindrical coordinates XCSEQ and . The dashed lines are circles of constant radial distance R from the comet. The orbit is split up into four legs: Leg 1 is shown radially away from the comet; Leg 2 is a curved path to apocentre; and Leg 3 and Leg 4 bring the spacecraft back to the comet (for the specific intervals see Table 1). Bottom panel: cone angle along the orbit projected onto the YZ-plane.
