Solar System Plot
This package will plot the positions of all planets (and Pluto) in the solar system. In addition, this will also read in the orbital elements of any other objects, such as asteroids, or spacecraft, and plot those relative to the planets.
Finally, the state history of these asteroids is output to a text file for use in other simulations.
To use just simply run
plot_planets.py to generate a plot of the solar system
You can use
plot_asteroid.py to plot the planets with an asteroid.
Currently, it is setup for three asteroids
