Solar System barycenter[edit source]

The graphics File:Solar_System_Barycenter_2000-2050.png and File:Solar_system_barycenter.svg show only a final result of a calculation. But what is the mathematical basis of this calculation? Was considered only the Jupiter planet and its orbit around the sun? Or which influences are also considered? --Con-struct (discusscontribs) 11:00, 8 January 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for your question! The first figure was calculated by the author and that calculation is described here:https://calgary.rasc.ca/orbits.htm#barycenter. The second is much less precisely described by the author in the text accompanying the image. --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 12:49, 8 January 2020 (UTC)
