An illustration showing the orbit of asteroids within our Solar System. Most of the known asteroids orbit in the asteroid belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter or co-orbital with Jupiter (the Jupiter Trojans). The asteroids are orbiting the Sun, each one traveling around the Sun fast enough for the orbits not to degrade.
