Planets of the Solar System
In this simulation you can see the motion of Mercury, Venus and the Earth along their orbits around the Sun. Observe how, due to their different translation speeds, the distances between the planets and the angular position of Mercury and Venus with respect to the Earth change.
Apparent motion of Mars
See what the motion of Mars is like with respect to the Earth and how it approaches or moves away, due to the different translation velocities of Mars and the Earth.
