I probably should have put a better explaination in the question. If I have trouble with problems Igo to help sessions. I was looking up various sites about the detection methods for finding extrasolar planets and saw many of them referred the old way of finding out whether a star had planets or not was by if it "wobbles" or there are noticeable changes in the lumenicity. I figured that if it could be done to other star systems to find planets, that it could be done to our own. I chose the sun and jupiter as the two bodies involved, since jupiter would have the most notice able effects on the sun. I was mainly curious to just how much our sun wobbled! When looking through the sites, I could never find exactly how perform this, could you help? Kevin
