What is the orientation of the ecliptic plane of our solar system in relation to the plane of the galaxy?
One source I found said they were aligned to within 5.5 degrees. http://www.earthsky.com/2000/es000304.html
Another source I found stated that the orbital planes were 63 degrees apart. http://www.essex1.com/people/stauffer/MLS/solarsys.html
Does anyone know for sure?
Also, are all of the orbital parameters of our solar system around the galactic core known?
