created with NASA's data

SpaceTime Coordinates products are created with data from NASA / JPL in order to calculate the precise position of planets on their orbital paths, given a particular date.

I've been able to create this project thanks to Martin Vézina who created a wonderful script to generate each design efficiently. it is mainly based on his amazing jsOrrery that is a Solar System / orbital mechanics simulation in WebGL and Javascript. it has been recently featured on OpenNASA.
