Sun: Flyby Vs Orbit

Question

When it comes to tourists contracts, what's the difference between a sun fly-by and a sun orbit requirement?  Or is it just the wording that's different and they both just need you to pop out of Kerbins SOI and back?

They are identical. Just pop out of Kerbin's SOI to complete both.

It's impossible do a kerbol flyby, you should come from another solar system

While I've never checked to see precisely when each parameter completes, I accomplish both by popping into and out of Sun SOI. My weak guess is that you get a "Sun flyby" by having an intercept with a planet, as opposed to just regular solar orbit for "orbit the Sun".

Thought it was just the wording being picked out by the contract generator, but wanted to double check as, despite having done a couple of them before (orbit the sun) it was still marked as an "Exceptional" achievement for rep.

Thanks again :)
