A polar plot showing actual measurements of solar wind speed (linear scale, approx. range 350-800 km/s), magnetic field (polarity), energetic particles and cosmic rays (logarithmic scales, with the cosmic ray trace offset with respect to the lower-energy particles) acquired by the Ulysses experiments. Particularly striking is the uniform fast (750 km/s) solar wind that fills a large fraction of the heliosphere above 30 degrees latitude in both hemispheres. Other noteworthy features are:
