Caption: Asteroid belt. Orbital diagram showing the Solar System out to the orbit of Jupiter, including the asteroid belt. The Sun (yellow) is at centre, surrounded by the first five planets (not to scale) and their orbits (white circles). From inner to outer, the planets are: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, and Jupiter. The asteroid belt is shown between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. The Trojan asteroids are also shown, at the L4 and L5 points, 60 degrees ahead or behind Jupiter (lower right) in its orbit. L4 and L5 are two of the five Lagrangian points of gravitational stability, with smaller objects (such as asteroids) held there by the larger mass of the planet.
