Caption

Solar System showing the inner (orange) and outer (blue) planets' orbits to scale, with the planets in the positions they had on 5th July 1968. Also shown is the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, and the Kuiper belt beyond Neptune. Unfilled circles on the orbit lines indicate perihelia, and filled circles, aphelia. The planets do not all orbit in exactly the same plane, although only Pluto's orbit is significantly inclined to show up on this diagram. Tick marks on the orbits indicate those points where the orbits cross the Ecliptic plane, the nodes. The numbers on the grid indicate distances from the Sun in Astronomical Units (AU), where 1 AU is the Earth-Sun distance. At the bottom is the Oort cloud.
