A variety of magnetic fluctuations were found by Kaguya in its orbit around the moon. They manifest the interaction between the solar wind and the lunar surface or the lunar crustal magnetic field. To understand the generation mechanisms of those phenomena, it is crucial to examine the relative potion of the spacecraft with respect to the moon in the solar wind and the magnetic anomaly on the surface, as well as the magnetic connection between the spacecraft and the moon.
In order to make it easier to realize the 3-dimentional configuration, we have developed computer software which enables a virtual 3-dimensional display of magnetic field vectors observed by Kaguya on the position of the spacecraft, together with the lunar magnetic field displayed on the moon. The data used are the 1-s averages of the Kaguya/LMAG magnetometer and SVM data (Tsunakawa et al., 2015, JGR Planet).
