The simplified Solar System

This Animation makes use of the mathematical functions sine and cosine :
x=sin(phi) and y=cos(phi).
"phi" is the rotational angle of the displayed planet (mars and earth by now).
The z-order of planet-display is determined by the
mathematical sign (+ or -) of function y.
