One of the striking aspects of our solar system is that the orbital plane of all the planets are similar i.e Its like the following:
And not like so:
But if you are puny human sitting on earth, how would one visualize this ? It’s easy!
Step out and look at the trajectory taken by the sun and planets in the sky:
You will notice that the trajectories taken by the sun and the planets are similar in the night sky.
This gives you a visual validation of the fact that the orbital plane of all the planets and the sun are similar. Just a little something that you may or may not have realized about the cosmos.
Go ahead, give it a shot and have fun!
* The ecliptic plane is the name given to the mean plane in the sky that the Sun follows over the course of a year;
