Orbits of the planets

Schematic view from above of the orbits of the three super-Earths around their host star. The scale is in astronomical units (AU), the mean distance between the Earth and the Sun. All planets are thus well within the orbit of Mercury around the Sun (which has an orbital period of 88 days).
