Note: Contrary To Bald Eagle, the animations played correctly on my 
system (Win11) not black.

I think these kind of simple and clear visual explanations can be very 
useful, certainly for starting (POV-Ray) modellers, but also for old 
hands who have temporarily lost their way in confusion and need a little 
reminder. :-) I am certainly one of those from time to time.

I would suggest that you label the x-, y-, z-axis in the first 
animation, and/or add the usual red, green, and blue colours to them.

Well done and keep on!
