N-body problem integration (N=10) displaying the actual Solar System during one plutonian year -Saturn point of view- [Intégration du problème des N-corps (N=10) montrant le véritable système solaire pendant une année plutonienne -point de vue de Saturne-].




Please, note that due to scale problems, it is almost impossible to visualize actual distances and sizes in the Solar System. Then, it is the square root of the distances to the Sun that are displayed; when the Solar System is displayed without such a non linear scaling, the inner planets are "hidden" by the Sun. Moreover, the diameter of each celestial body is multiplied by a huge arbitrary factor.

Each celestial body is colored according to its actual color:
