What is the angle between the planes of the solar system and of the Galaxy?
Information and sources are wanted on the angle between the planes of our solar system and of our Galaxy. The plane of the solar system is reckoned as the average plane of matter circling the Sun, it can be taken as the plane of the centre of the Sun and of Jupiter in two positions, a quarter Jupiter-year apart. Similarly, the plane of the Galaxy can be reckoned as the plane bisecting the galactic disc which has half the galaxy's matter above it, and half below. It would also be of interest to know how far away the Sun is from this disc. (ZBL#121)
