      It's transponder must be really low power as I can barely get a lock on it from 35 miles away at 5K alt.
      I'm within 5 miles of Moffett Field so it should get much stronger once it clears the mountains.
      It looks like it's heading in for an approach now.

        Just picked up Solar Impulse 2 strong on my receiver. Looks like mode-S only and not ADS-B. Should be a T-MLAT radar source. At one point I saw T-SOLAR as the radar source. The rest of the time it was T-KSJC18 and T-KSFO1.

          Final approach, landing from the nw to the se opposite the normal direction for the area. Signal level over 100 and no positional data.

          Edit: It looks like it's passing the runway at 675 for an approach from the SE which is the normal direction.

          Edit2: Solar 2 just landed at Moffett. Watched it live on FR24 even though abc 7 local news spent the air time on commercials.
