    Ok, this is awesome, thx for posting.

    I’m having an issue with the fact that the planet sizes aren’t to scale 🙁

    Yeah, or the sun (which is like 99% of the mass of the solar system). Oh, and the orbits aren’t circular either.

    Does the solar system really reset every time the moon hits Mars? This would explains a lot now that I think of it.

    This is all explained in fortune cookies and horoscopes. Pay attention!

    I don’t think it’s intended to be an accurate representation of the orbits or the scale, just a representation of planet rotation relative to the others.

    To really do the orbits you would need a 3d map anyway as the solar system isn’t on a single plane.

    The scale is the problem in this case
