Plots are in GSE (geocentric solar ecliptic) coordinates, so Earth is at [0,0], the Sun is at [1,0]. The plot is the projection of the orbit on the ecliptic plane.


6th orbit + first part of 7th orbit in EMP: 4 RS windows, N and both S windows reach max latitude 31º ; perihelium at 0.3AU.

RS window (default) placement
