This is the focal plane version of the Gaia Sky WebGL (former Gaia Sandbox). This tool provides a real time view of the Gaia Focal Plane using Tycho 2 stars (in reality Gaia observes much fainter stars as well). It is based on the scanning operations of Gaia. It does not take into account operational activities preventing nominal observations.
