In astronomy, libration
is a perceived oscillating motion
of orbiting bodies relative
to each other, notably including

(/ləˈɡrɑːndʒiən/ also Lagrange
points, L-points, or libration
points) are positions
in an orbital configuration
of two large
(from the Latin
"to balance, to sway"; cf. libra
"scales") is a type of reciprocating motion
with a nearly
body—in this case Neptune. Relative
to Neptune, the amplitude
is 38°, and so the angular separation
