Diagram of orbit
Orbit Elements · Introduction Inclination to the equator and lunar standstill. Every 18.6 years, the angle between the Moon's orbit and Earth's equator reaches a maximum of 28°36′,
the sum of Earth's equatorial tilt (23°27′) and the Moon's orbital inclination (5°09′) to the ecliptic. This is called major lunar standstill. The diagram shows the Earth at four different positions in it’s orbit around the Sun. Write the number(s) of the appropriate position next to each of the following events. Planetary Orbits. For each planet the line of nodes (the line through the Sun where the planet's orbit intersects our orbit) is shown. Both
ascending nodes (where the planet moves upwards through the orbital plane of the Earth) are at the bottom, but Pluto's orbit is tilted 17 degrees upward, and Neptune's less than 2 degrees.

is at a distance of about 147,098,074 km. When it is at its farthest distance from the Sun, Earth is said to be at aphelion – which happens around July 4th where the Earth reaches a distance of about 152,097,701 km. The Sun is near the center of Earth's orbit. The Earth orbits the Sun in an ellipse, which is a long and thin circle. Ellipses have two foci, not 1 like a circle. FMA: 53074TA:
A02.1.00.067MeSH: D009915Latin: Orbita Inclination is the angle of the orbit in relation to Earth’s equator. A satellite that orbits directly above the equator has zero inclination. If a satellite orbits from the north pole (geographic, not magnetic) to the south pole, its inclination is 90 degrees.
