Title: SSSBs, Dwarfs and Planets ivsa warning large image
Post by abyssoft on 11/19/08 at 14:27:33

The image explains its self other then the Y axis is in degrees the major divisions are in 5 deg and the minor are 1 deg.

Big yellow ball in the lower left corner is the sun
Large green balls are planets
Small green balls are dwarf planets and dwarf planet candidates.
Little brown balls are asteroids
and last but not least
Tiny gray (grey) dots are asteroids (50 meters or smaller as defined by spacewatch)

Okay got the image to upload, due to it size Safari and Chrome may have problems viewing it.

I'll be working on a smaller version with better text and more highlights pointed out on it.

So that's basically everything in our solar system, right?

You can really see the 2:3 resonance with Neptune, where all the plutinos hang out.

Compare this image (from wikipedia's Kuiper Belt entry):

Where did you get the data from Abyssoft ?
Would indeed be nice to have a smaller version .

Data acquired from nightly export from the MPC Database, Wikipedia and JPL.

Ok Decided to go with a series of images they will be posted in a new thread in a few days,

they will be
0-1.6 AU Semi Major Axis 0-90 deg inclination: Semi Major Axis vs Inclination, Semi Major Axis vs eccentricity,  inclination vs eccentricity
1.6-4.6 AU Semi Major Axis 0-90 deg inclination: Semi Major Axis vs Inclination, Semi Major Axis vs eccentricity,  inclination vs eccentricity
(Full Inclusion or Asteroid Belt)
4.9-5.5 AU Semi Major Axis 0-90 deg inclination: Semi Major Axis vs Inclination, Semi Major Axis vs eccentricity,  inclination vs eccentricity
(Jovians)
30-110 AU Semi Major Axis 0-90 deg inclination: Semi Major Axis vs Inclination, Semi Major Axis vs eccentricity,  inclination vs eccentricity
(TNO)

I'm wondering how much data ( number of bodies , parameters ) you gathered in your summary file and how big it is .

Title: Re: SSSBs, Dwarfs and Planets ivsa warning large i
Post by abyssoft on 11/21/08 at 14:37:41

Summary Data Set Includes

1 Star
8 Planets as defined by IAU
56 Dwarf Planets as defined by IAU consisting of 5 Confirmed and 51 Candidates
370502 Small Solar System Bodies
-369822 Asteroids
-680 Meteroids

Parameters on each body include
compressed Designation, Planetary Related Absolute Magnitude, Inclination in Degrees, Eccentricity, Semi-major-axis, Readable designation, Diameter of Body (calculated), Albedo(measured for Dwarf planets and larger (TNO's with an unknown Albedo value of .085 was used) / Estimate based on semi-major axis for SSSB)
File is ~92MB in size
