Is it possible for an object to orbit a stationary object? It seems to me that the reason for orbits is this: An object of greater mass pulls an object of lesser mass towards it. The object of lesser mass(B) heads towards the center of the higher mass object(A), but object A moves. Object B's inertia is sending it to the place where object A used to be, but gravity from object A starts to pull b towards it. A continues to move, and B's inertia keeps causing it to pass by A and then be pulled back. To me it seems that nothing could orbit around a stationary point becuase it would either go directly to the point or spiral steadily towards it. Is this pretty much it?
