Trail of a planet which hesitate
between the attraction field of two close stars.
At the begining of the simulation, the planet is positioned at the center, at equal distance from the two suns,
with a slight starting inpulse toward the top.
The planet will wave between the
2 stars, as a piece of metal placed between 2 magnets of same

The planet ends in a final scratch on the left star.

The double gravity field create a slighty elliptic orbit which shift the trail at each turn.
Contrary to the previous
this one is very stable and can maintain itself indefinitely..
Same kind of system as in the previous one.
