A neutron star is very dense. In fact, its surface is solid. This eliminates the presence of spots or granules.

Re: Orient spacecraft by RA/Dec or ecliptic coordinates

Why indicate the coordinates when you can specify a star by name? BodyFrame { TwoVector { Center "Sol/Kepler" Primary { Axis "y" RelativePosition { Observer "Sol/Kepler" Target "Kepler-1000" } } Secondary { Axis "x" RelativeVelocity { Observer "...

The length of the trajectories for hyperbolic bodies is increased from 40 to 900 years. XYZV-files are optimized and take up space 10 times less.

The purple color of orbit our team adds only to SSC.
The blue color of label we did not change and could not change. It is identical to the standard color of big and dwarf planets, which is exactly what I meant.

Re: Dwarf planet label color

I know, but you did choose the dwarf planet orbit color. So what? For convenience, we choose our own color, but did not embed it in the program code. That's too similar to the label color for major planets, and not close enough to the orbit color for dwarf planets. If you haven't chosen a label col...

Clear. This file is not included in Origin. We did not create or edit it.

But color of label I know:

Important message for Linux and MacOS users. Try installing the Celestia Origin v.9 on your systems without Wine, using scripts from attachment. Report the OS version and installation results. Than more information, that better. Thank you for any help. :smile: The new version does not just delete c...

It's been a decade. I lost my hopes in that regard. I'm considering a new definition is more likely at this point as planetary scientists don't agree with the IAU anyways... My personal approach to such dilemmas comes down to a simple question - "who am I to argue with the world community?&quo...

Probably so. In any case, the emergence of new dwarf planets is only a matter of time.

For Haumea, Makemake and Eris this was not required. :smile:
