pst-solarsystem – Plot the solar system for a specific date
The package uses pstricks to produce diagrams of the visible planets, projected on the plane of the ecliptic. It is not possible to represent all the planets in their real proportions, so only Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars have their orbits in correct proportions and their relative sizes are observed. Saturn and Jupiter are in the right direction, but not in the correct size.
