TLE orbits in WWT Solar System view

Here’s a cool feature: WWT can plot satellite orbits when you paste a Two-Line Element Set (TLE) in a new reference frame for Earth. This example shows the orbital path for TESS (in green) along with the Moon’s orbit.

FYI, the orbital path is only displayed if you check both “Planetary Orbits” and “Moon & Satellite Orbits.” I would argue that Moon & Satellite orbits should be able to be displayed without also having to turn on the Planetary Orbits. (See issue logged on github).
