Æther, the final frontier...
We seem to be in an ethereal mood. This detail of a work-in-progress demonstrates how far each planet (out to Jupiter) will travel in a terrestrial month. It is, of course, simplified and loses track of precise location after about two years. The larger spaces on each orbit roughly shows the real positions of the planets in the middle of January in 1899. All of the planets shown move one space counter-clockwise per month.
The work-in-progress image shows the full orbit of Jupiter (so you can imagine its size). Reaction to this post will guide the direction of the project.
