Planets consisting of diamond have been identified before, but this is the first one that orbits a star.
Venus orbits the Sun within the habitable zone, and is only slightly smaller than Earth.
Mars is a planet that orbits the Sun and has never been visited by man.
Kepler-10c, which is the proper name for the mega-Earth, orbits its star much closer than our planet does.
There are no post-orbital processes to the frontals or any other demarcation between the orbits and the temporal fossae.
The orbits of the planets are nearly circles, but they are not exactly circles.
We can measure the course of the sun, and the orbits of the planets.
We can assign to the planets and to the orbits their proper proportions.
Green Aracari, beneath paler; throat whitish, round the orbits blue; bill with two lateral longitudinal grooves.
"I thought the orbits were mapped on the claim papers," Tom said.
late 14c., "the eye socket," from Old French orbite or directly from Medieval Latin orbita, transferred use of Latin orbita "wheel track, beaten path, rut, course, orbit" (see orb). Astronomical sense first recorded 1690s in English; it was in classical Latin, revived in Gerard of Cremona's translation of Avicenna.
1946, from orbit (n.). Related: Orbited; orbiting.
orbit or·bit (ôr'bĭt)
See orbital cavity.
In astronomy, the path followed by an object revolving around another object, under the influence of gravitation (see satellite). In physics, the path followed by an electron within an atom. The planets follow elliptical orbits around the sun (see ellipse).
Note: Informally, something is “in orbit” when its actions are controlled by an external agency or force: “The countries of eastern Europe were once in the orbit of the Soviet Union.”
