about

You may notice while planet-gazing that the planets can all be connected by a straight invisible line. That is because the planets orbit the Sun on the plane of the ecliptic. Naturally, it needed its own song.

lyrics

Every time you look into the sky at night and see a planet
You will notice you can trace the planets in a line
Called the ecliptic plane
The ecliptic plane

It's sort of like concentric hula hoops around the Sun
And every hula hoop's an orbit at about the same level
The ecliptic plane
The ecliptic plane

(chorus)
Around the Sun we go
All along the ecliptic plane
Round and round we float
All along the ecliptic plane
Along the ecliptic plane
Hey now, here we go

Every time you look into the sky at night and see a planet
You will notice you can trace the planets in a line
Called the ecliptic plane
The ecliptic plane

Every now and then the Moon will pass across the plane
Thus creating an eclipse--that's how it got its name
The ecliptic plane

(repeat chorus)
The ecliptic plane
