Geocentric Solar telescopes[edit]

The template currently includes Solar Dynamics Observatory, which is a geocentric heliophysics mission. All other spacecrafts listed in the Solar science section are either in heliocentric orbit or at Lagrangian points. If we include SDO, the other Earth-based sun observing satellites like IRIS and Hinode, must all be added. Not to forget Earth orbiting planetary telescopes such as Hisaki, and the Hubble (as it has conducted numerous observations of Solar System objects).

To avoid this template from getting overcrowded, I suggest that only deep space missions (including Lunar and Lagrangian missions) be included in this template. Kind regards, Hms1103 (talk) 16:38, 28 March 2018 (UTC)
