Bug Description

Description rewritten by Bogdan Marinov:

No orbits are displayed for the moons of some planets, including the Earth, Mars, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto. The reason is that no "orbit_visualization_period" has been provided for these moons in the default ssystem.ini file, perhaps deliberately. It should be noted that most of Jupiter's moons and all of Neptune's moons have orbits only because they were added during Alexander Wolf's efforts to provide additional planetary satellites (this is also when bug #834737 was introduced). We need to decide whether we want orbits for planetary satellites.

I think we can add orbit_visualization_period only for big moons of planets.
