The planets in the heavens move in exquisite orbital patterns, dancing to the Music of the Cosmos.  There is more mathematical and geometric harmony than we realize.   The idea for this article is from a book Larry Pesavento shared with me.  The book, 'A Little Book of Coincidence' by John Martineau, illustrates the orbital patterns and several of their geometrical relationships.  .

TRAPPIST-1 Solar System Comparison. This diagram compares the TRAPPIST-1 planet system with Earth's solar system. The size of Earth's sun is shown with regard to the red dwarf star, TRAPPIST-1. The position of the seven planets around TRAPPIST-1 are shown in relation to Mercury's orbit around the sun.

Delaying Death: Mercury Spacecraft Firing Engines To Stay Up Until 2015 - Universe Today

Earlier this year, NASA’s MESSENGER mission continued to take photos of Mercury right up until it crashed into the planet. This enhanced image of the usually grey-looking planet shows how color doesn’t quite capture the diversity of the planet’s make up.

Messenger Reaches Mercury While it's not a "discovery," per se, it's a milestone that will no doubt lead to many new findings about the smallest and innermost planet in our solar system.   In March, after a 6 1/2-year, 4.9 billion mile journey, NASA's Messenger spacecraft reached Mercury's orbit.   Messenger, the first spacecraft to orbit Mercury, orbits the planet every 12 hours.   In November, NASA announced that the spacecraft's mission, which was supposed to end on March 17, 2012, would…
