This animation is a graphical depiction looking down on our solar
system of the first 20,000 numbered minor planets (asteroids). For
the astronomically challenged, each of the gray rings is the mean
orbit for each of the first five planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars
and Jupiter), with Mercury being closest to the Sun. Earth orbit is the
third ring from the center.
The animation was created using orbital element data from the
Minor Planet Center and numerous programs we wrote to perform
the calculations required to plot each asteroid position for each day
shown in the resulting visualisation.
The Minor Planet Center orbital element database used to produce
this sequence contains about five times the number shown - 99,906
numbered asteroids, excluding the objects currently holding
Clicking on the image will show the movement of the minor planets
over a 180 day period beginning January 30, 2005. WARNING: The
animation sequence is approximately 4Mb in size.

This example animation is an example of
how presenting technical data is not
only helpful, in many cases it is absolutely
essential in gaining an understanding of
what the data represents. Computer
animation provides a way to present a
tremendous amount of information in a
simple, easy to understand format. Click the
