orbitOrbit is the path that an object moves through around another object or objects. For example, the Earth orbits the Sun, that is, it moves through a circular path around it. Some orbits are very circular, and others are elliptical. Orbits can be of any object around another object--from an electron orbiting around the nucleus of an atom to solar systems orbiting around the nucleus of the galaxy.
