Pluto system animated

Below is a animation of the Pluto system. The speeds and distances are to scale. The sizes of the objects are exaggerated. Buttons in the lower left offer three size scales: 1) Zoom in to Pluto-Charon, 2) View Pluto system, and 3) Scale out to the orbit of Earth's moon. The tilt slider works only when the pluto system scale is selected.
