The center of mass is somewhere between the sermon and communion.
Yes, but it would be a brave man, in the company of a load of hairy bikers, to get pedantic about Physics!
Hi Brex,Found this on Lagrange points:www.space.com/php/popup/lagrange/lagrange3.htmlCheers.Saganist

Would its actual location in an LP actually be an advantage? The potential well in the vicinity of the LP is very shallow.
They would be the only two stable orbital points anywhere near the lunar orbit.
I understand that the two stable LPs may be occupied by a certain amount of clutter already. Never know what you might find there!
