Animations: the pages

Solar system may be seen through animations made from the images sent by the space probes, by observing satellites or from ground-based telescopes.
Of course, the real motions in the Solar system seem to be slow and the animations are accelerated. 
The links towards specific animation files are designated by   all along the Tour.
You will find hereafter the list of the pages including animations proposed on our site as well as informations on the means for visualize them.
The links below are directed to pages including animations or links to animations and providing explanations on these animations.
The direct links to the animation files are available here.
