PDF document and MATLAB script named planet_plot.m that can be used to graphically display orbital information about the planets of our solar system. The planetary motion is modeled using the JPL DE440 ephemeris. The heliocentric state vector (position and velocity vectors) and celestial orbital elements are provided in the mean ecliptic and equinox of J2000 coordinate system.
