Up to now, we have neglected the fact that the orbits of the
five visible planets about the sun are all slightly inclined to the plane of the ecliptic. Of course, these inclinations cause
the ecliptic latitudes of the said planets to take small, but non-zero, values.
In the following, we shall outline a model which is capable of predicting these values.
