Pretty cool orbit animation that produces a tone every time a planet completes an orbit. Makes interesting "solar song".

That is way cool. It really shows how slow Pluto's orbit is compared with the inner planets.
Could be described as the music of the spheres.

I composed a piece with a roughly similar objective - with just Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune.

All other orbit animations wish they were this one.

Seriously.

This is the best introduction to earth's orbital patterns I have ever seen. It is purely mainstream science, with no speculation. The various components of earth's orbit are described and pictured in simple and quick terms, showing the scientific basis for long term cycles of climate.

This is an excellent flash animation which you can use a slider to move from every day objects down to atoms then down to strings then the other way out to the extent of the universe as we know it.

check it out.

Wow Johnson, that is just superb.

I used it to make this picture of the apparent geocentric orbits, showing the epicycles of Jupiter. It shows how the movement of the planets appears to us from earth, with the annual retrograde motion causing the loops as earth speeds past the outer planets. Jupiter gets back to its original position after 11.85 years, and by turning on tracing you can see this picture of nearly six years of Jupiter's apparent motion.

They tried to make the geocentric system work. I mean, really tried.

Here's what the night sky would look like observed from a fixed position. Not being forced to rotate with the earth.

This is completely awesome, and beats all other previous solar systems.

Yes, brilliant. Amazing to zoom around the solar system and see the constellations too.
