Orbit of Pluto relative to Neptune

From the author of   Sizing Up The Universe

Shown here are the orbits of the Sun, the Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as seen in a rotating frame that keeps Neptune fixed on the positive horizontal axis.

This work was inspired by the paper Pluto's Heliocentric Orbit written by R. Malhotra and J. Williams and directed to my attention by Scott Tremaine.
