ecliptic

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
The ecliptic is the mean plane of the apparent path in the Earth's sky that the Sun follows over the course of one year; it is the basis of the ecliptic coordinate system. This plane of reference is coplanar with Earth's orbit around the Sun (and hence the Sun's apparent path around Earth).

optical-path

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
The path that light takes in travelling an optical medium or system is often called the optical path. The physical length of an optical device can be reduced to less than the length of the optical path by using folded optics.

orbit

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
In physics, an orbit is the gravitationally curved trajectory of an object, such as the trajectory of a planet around a star or a natural satellite around a planet. Normally, orbit refers to a regularly repeating trajectory, although it may also refer to a non-repeating trajectory.

trajectory

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
The study of projectile is called ballistic A trajectory or flight path is the path that an object with mass in motion follows through space as a function of time. In classical mechanics, a trajectory is defined by Hamiltonian mechanics via canonical coordinates; hence, a complete trajectory is defined by position and momentum, simultaneously.
