- Does the invariable plane of the Solar system have axial precession? If so, how much and at what rate? I have wondered this for a while, but never found an answer.

As the title asks, does the invariable plane of the Solar system have axial precession? And if so, how much and at what rate?

I have tried to find an answer to these questions for a while now, but still haven't found any. I recently asked on reddit too, which pointed me to some speculation about how various galactic gravitational factors would likely yield a very small precession rate, but there was nothing conclusive, and certainly nothing about the rate or magnitude of the precession.

So, this seemed like the best public astrophysics-related forum I could find, and I hope perhaps someone here might know the answer.
