Download Notebook

This animation starts near the center of the solar system and then zooms out to about 250 AUs. It shows the orbits of the commonly known solar system bodies and, in the final frames, includes the orbits of Pluto in white and the recently announced "10th planet", Eris (2003 UB313), in red. The light blue orbit belongs to Sedna which is currently the record holder for the most distant solar system object.
