Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

I have found information about inclination of Luna-2 trajectory... and it's about 65 degrees in relation to the Earth Equator... so I made new trajectory for Luna-2... now it more correct, but still some errors because of Celestia.. :biggrin: In the pictures, start from Baikonur (Kazakhstan),,, and ...
