This is still a work in progress and the ssc still needs some fine tuning
and minor edits

the Venus fly-by today ( Feb.20.2021 )

You will NEED to read the ssc file to download the NEEDED spice kernels, they go in the data folder

-- 3.5 Meg zip
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1yPu94lxmLYVe-Mm4bVf3jCVuHqY7MGs-/view?usp=sharing

Also the solar-system barycenter ssc needs to be used along with the spice planets
-- at least for Venus

see the celestialmatters forum Spice Kernel Files section for the tutorials
---- archive.org ----

Just checked the links do not work

here is a copy of my barycenter ssc , it goes in celestia/extras
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6ZYAd08tZL-VzZOSkd1aUJYSHc/view?usp=sharing

you will need to download the spice kernel de438.bsp , it goes in celestia/extras/data
https://naif.jpl.nasa.gov/pub/naif/generic_kernels/spk/planets/de438.bsp


and the inner solar-system spice ssc , it goes in celestia/extras
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1vrUtd12XsrYg40GddNeWCAgBQXivyxtL/view?usp=sharing

you will need for the inner solar system, they go in celestia/extras/data
