Hello everybody, I'am trying to create an animation of two sphers joined by a line and moving on an ellipse. I have ploted the ellipse as Graphics[{Dashed, Circle[{0, 0}, {10, 5}]}] and the two sphers joined by a line as Graphics3D[{Sphere[{0, 0, 0}, 1], Sphere[{-5, -1, -1}], {Thick, Orange, Line[{{0, 0, 0}, {-5, -1, -1}}]}}, Boxed -> False, ImageSize -> 100] after that I could not make any further step! I would appreciate any help. thanks, Mark
