Planets and the ecliptic. (Not to scale!) The planets orbit the Sun in the same plane - it's called the ecliptic. It's almost as though they're all rolling around on a giant tabletop. BUT there is no tabletop & the orbits are slightly tilted in various ways. BTW they also don't line up nicely like this.
