Aren't the Earth and the Moon too planets sharing the same orbit?
is this a trick question?
I understand that the Moon's orbit is always concave towards the Sun, which is not the case if the Moon were primarily orbiting the Earth.
But not if there are other large bodies in the same system.
Then the disturbance from gravity from them will destabilise the orbits in a few million years quite a lot.
