Orbit Intersections

Solar System with 2 comets

Click to zoom and rotate around the Sun.

I use the z-coordinate of the lines at each intersection to decide which one to draw in front of the other.
Next steps are to add a user interface that allows to choose image rendering parameters, and to load asteroids and comets orbital elements from a web site (not sure which one).
