Nice.
Astrological Symbols for the planet labels would take up less screen 
space. That "Mercury" seems big. :)

The text works/looks fine in the latest update.

The orbit trace is more visible as is the planets' shadow. With the grey 
background.
What is the relevance of what looks like a shadow of the orbits at 9 
o'clock?

Looking at a single frame I'm guessing it is a shadow of the orbit on 
the plane of the ecliptic.

It looks like the planets get above the ecliptic at nine o'clock (hence 
the shadow from the orbit trace; below at three?

You might want to mention that in the description. ;)

I don't know which one I prefer. I like the shadows in the dark one. The 
grey one shows off the orbits better, I think.
