Abstract. Different magnetopause models with a diverse level of complexity are in use. They have in common to be mainly based on near-earth observations, i.e., they use measurements at distances of about ±10 Earth radii. Only very few observations of magnetopause crossings at larger distances are used for model fitting. In this study we compare position and direction pre- dictions of the Shue et al. (1997) magnetopause model with actual observations of magnetopause crossings identified using the 5 ARTEMIS spacecraft at lunar distance, about 60 Earth radii. We find very good agreement between prediction and observation for the magnetopause position. Also the magnetopause normal directions are reasonably well predicted.

Short summary
The magnetopause (MP) is the primary interaction region between solar wind and the magnetic field of planet Earth whose understanding of behaviour also helps to better understand space weather. One famous model of the MP is the Shue et al. model, designed for the dayside and near Earth situation. We take data of the ARTEMIS mission, orbiting the moon, and compare the MP position and shape to the model and find good agreement to the Shue et al. model even far away from its scope of application.
