Computing planetary orbits between two celestial objects

Featured Image for Computing planetary orbits between two celestial objects

As you probably know, I am working (slowly) on an astronomically accurate calendar generator. All the orbital calculations involved are quite challenging, and I am discovering a lot. It is a lot of fun (except for the all the times I need to do some trigonometric magic to make some formula work). Anyway, during this process, I am reshaping and producing many many formulas. I am sure that in six months I will forget all the motivations behind them.
