as a publicity stunt, SpaceX propelled a red Tesla into the sky as part of its Falcon Heavy launch this week. That car is now a permanent advertisement on the NASA HORIZONS directory of solar system bodies. if you log into the directory you’ll find both the details about the Roadster, as well as its ephemeris, or its position in the sky.
