Retrograde Orbit of 2008 KV42
« on: September 11, 2008, 05:35:12 PM »
There's a new system/simulation in the latest release of Universe Sandbox:
Retrograde Orbit - 2008 KV42

It shows the orbit of a recently discovered comet that is orbiting backwards (kind of) around the Sun.

In this image we're hovering just slightly above the plane of the solar system at a distance of 83 AU from the Sun.
