I want to look at the spacecraft trajectory of the TIMED spacecraft for a couple of days. I do not have detailed information except for the fact that it is circular orbit 625 km in altitude with an inclination of 74.1°. There is an instrument - GUVI on TIMED and using the spacecraft trajectory and the sun position I want to figure out whether the instrument is looking in earth shadow or sunlit portion. How do I go about doing this? I am new to GMAT so any suggestions are more than welcome!
