Make a Planet Orbit

Let's get things moving!

Drag the create planetblock into the workspace and connect it within the setblock.

To animate the planet’s orbit you need to draw the background, the star, and the planet within the loop block.

Make sure they’re in the right order!

Try changing the size, period, and angle of your planet to see what effect they have.

The orbital period of a planet is how long it takes to complete one orbit around its star. The orbital period of Earth is 1 year.
