The path described by a heavenly body in its periodical revolution around another body; as, the orbit of Jupiter, of the earth, of the moon.
1) The motion of a massive body around another massive body, governed by the force of gravity. Planets in our Solar System follow elliptical orbits around the Sun, as first noted by Johannes Kepler. An orbit is actually composed of two motions: one that points toward the other body (for example, a planet or star) and the another that points tangentially to the direction of motion. In the case of a circular orbit, these two component motions are at a 90 degree angle. According to Einstein's General Theory of Relativity, an orbit is actually a geodesic in space-time. 2) The act of one body revolving around another.
This term describes the motion of a body of matter around another more massive body and is governed by the force of gravity. Johannes Kepler first observed that the planets in our solar system orbit around the Sun in the shape of an ellipse. A body follows an orbit because it feels forces in two distinct directions acting on it: (1) directly towards the more massive body (i.e., a star or planet) and (2) tangent to the orbital path. See polar orbit, Clarke orbit.
