Either of the points on the celestial sphere at which the plane of an orbit intersects a reference plane.
The position of a node is one of the standard orbital elements used to specify the orientation of an orbit.
An antinode lies 90° of orbital longitude away from its corresponding node.

  Orbital Mechanics
Inclination is the angular distance between a satellite's orbital plane and the equator of its primary (or the ecliptic plane in the case of heliocentric, or sun centered, orbits).
The longitude of the ascending node is the node's celestial longitude.
Orbital transfer becomes more complicated when the object is to rendezvous with or intercept another object in space: both the interceptor and the target must arrive at the rendezvous point at the same time.

 Orbital node
The ascending (or north) node is where the object moves north from the southern hemisphere to the northern, the descending (or south) node is where the object moves back south.
The symbol of the ascending node is ☊, descending node is ☋.
The lunar nodes are subject to lunar precession, which is the gradual shift westward because of the gravitational pull of the Sun upon the Moon.

 NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Lunar eclipse
The lunar nodes are the orbital nodes of the Moon, that is, the points where the orbit of the Moon crosses the ecliptic (which is the apparent path of the Sun across the heavens against the background stars).
However, since the orbital plane of the Moon is inclined by about 5° with respect to the orbital plane of the Earth (the ecliptic), most full moons occur when the Moon is either north or south of Earth's shadow.
For an eclipse to occur, the Moon must be near its orbital node —the intersection of the orbital planes.

The Longitude of the ascending node (☊, also noted Ω) is one of the orbital elements used to specify the orbit of an object in space.
For a Sun-orbiting body, it is the angle formed at the Sun from the First Point of Aries to the body's ascending node, measured in the reference plane (the ecliptic) and in the direct sense.

The orbital inclination was 105.6°, and the latitude of periapsis was near 17° N. The Pioneer Venus instruments are described in IEEE Trans.
The argument of periapsis (4) is the argument (angular distance) of periapsis from the ascending node.
Time of periapsis passage (5) and the celestial longitude of the ascending node (6) are the remaining elements.

 Lunar node Information
Usually only the north node is marked in horoscopes, as the south node is by definition always located at the opposite point in the astrological chart.
In general, the north node is viewed a point of opportunity for growth and development and self help, while the south node is thought to represent karmic repression or tendencies that restrict growth.
The north node carries the positive and ultra-beneficial tone of Jupiter, while the south node expresses the restrictions and obstacles of Saturn.

This behaviour is unlike that of the s orbitals for which the value of the wave function for a given value of r is the same no matter what direction is chosen.
In general, apart from a nodal plane, p-orbitals have a number of radial nodes that separate the largest, outer, component from the inner components.
The number of radial nodes is related to the principal quantum number, n.

The orbit of Venus is tilted by approximately 3.4° relative to the ecliptic (Earth's orbital plane).
The orbital planes of the other planets in our solar system do not show a similar motion in the same direction or to a similar extent.
However, the orbital node movement of Venus, and hence the occurrence of transit pairs, does indeed suggest a resonance effect.

 Definition of Ascending node
The ascending node is one of the orbital nodes, a point in the orbit of an object where it crosses the plane of the ecliptic from the south celestial hemisphere to the north celestial hemisphere in the direction of motion.
Because of this, the ascending node of the orbit of the Earth's moon is one of only two places where a lunar or solar eclipse can occur.
The line of nodes is the intersection of the object's orbital plane with the ecliptic, and runs between the ascending and descending nodes.

 Bonds   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-25)
In the second sigma bonding case, the p orbital can reach out to the s orbital, but the overlap is smaller because the s orbital cannot reach out to the p orbital.
For example, in the fully antibonding orbital, N = 5, therefore the number of nodes should be 4, which there is. There is also one more type of molecular orbital, the non-bonding type, and plays no role in bonding.
The larger B is, the better the overlap and the greater the separation between the bonding and anti-bonding orbitals.

 Satellite Observing: Orbital Elements
Orbital elements specify the position of the satellite at a certain time called the epoch.
Now that the orbital plane is oriented in space, then the position of the orbital ellipse in the orbital plane must be defined.
It ranges from 0 to 360 degrees, and is 0 degrees when the perigee is at the ascending node and 180 degrees when the satellite is farthest from the Earth when it rises up over the equator.

 The Sirius Research Group
In the case of Venus, the observer on Earth needs to know the EXACT orbital times and orbital distances (or apparent changes in orbital speed) of both planets, in order to make an accurate calculation or prediction based on the calendar, as to when and where the next transits of Venus will be visible.
Evidently, Earth's orbital path around the Sun is longer from the position of Venus' descending node in June to its ascending node in December than from the December node to the June node.
A greater orbital distance for the Earth (from descending node to ascending node) requires more rotations or days, whereas an increase in Earth's orbital speed over the same distance implies less time and therefore, fewer days.

 Cosmos: The SAO Encyclopedia: Orbital Inclination
Along with the argument of perihelion and the ascending node, the orbital inclination (i) is one of the elements that must be specified in order to define the orientation of an elliptical orbit.
Although the ecliptic provides a convenient reference plane from which to measure the orbital inclinations of planets in our Solar System, a different reference plane should be adopted for each of the planetary systems discovered around other stars.
Note: Orbital inclination should not be confused with obliquity - the tilt of a planet's axis relative to the orbit.

Important exceptions to the rule of normal margin exist (e.g., tumors of the orbit and of the genitourinary region).[1-3] The principle of wide and complete resection of the primary tumor is less applicable to patients known to have metastatic disease at the initial operation, but is a reasonable concept if easily accomplished.
