As the Sun moves through the local interstellar medium (LISM), neutral atoms travel through the heliosphere and can be detected by IBEX. We consider interstellar neutral (ISN) hydrogen atoms with a drifting Maxwellian distribution function in the LISM that travel on almost hyperbolic trajectories to the inner heliosphere. They are subject to solar gravity and radiation pressure, as well as ionization processes. For ISN H, the radiation pressure, which exerts an effective force comparable to...
