Orbital Variation

leave a comment »


Long drive today and I’m a bit tired, so I decided to play with the orbital system that I set up the other day. In this instance, the ‘sun’ is the position of the mouse, so moving the mouse around causes the relative positions of the ‘earth’ and ‘moon’ to change. I allowed it to draw on top of itself for a while and thought that the end result looked somewhat like renderings of proteins that I’ve seen, or perhaps a pile of Mardi Gras beads. :)
