Epicyclic Movement of Superior Planets

Epicyclic Movement of the superior planets (Mars, Jupiter & Saturn) in a geocentric model. This is a simplification of Ptolomey's geocentric model (ignores eccentricity of orbits). Actual orbital periods and semi-major axis values are used in this model. Use the check boxes to turn on tracking of the geocentric orbits of the planets.
