A project to continually display the distance to every planet

I finally made a final version out of this. It ended up being a web page

One link,  How far are the planets from Earth? ( does what the initial goal intended, to continuously update a display of relative distance, speed and acceleration.

The other, bigger page How far is Mars? ( lets the user search for events like maximum distance and opposition.

Both pages can be retargeted to any planet.

One feature that I like is that you can create a link to the current display  For example, How far is Mars? ( is the opposition of Mars wrt. Earth that happened.

[Perhaps I should change the title when you do capture image so that you can see what it represents in the title.]
