Controls for the Ravens orbit panner widget

The controls for the Ravens orbit planner widget can be seen to the right.  The widget allows you to change the apogee and perigee of the orbit, the argument of periapsis, and the position of the Ravens spacecraft in their orbits.  The bottom left panel then shows the viewing angle of the spacecraft on the northern polar region: red and green angles are best for viewing the auroras.
