Magnetic Field near a Moving Charge

A particle with positive charge q is moving with speed along the z axis toward positive z. At the time of this problem it is located at the origin, x=y=z=0. Your task is to find the magnetic field at various locations in the three-dimensional space around the moving charge. (Figure 1)
