Solar orbit during the first 80 Myr in a simulation of the high-mass cluster, with grey circles indicating the core and half-mass radii. The solar orbit is illustrated by a line that switches colour (from violet to blue, green and yellow) every time a star is encountered. The starting points of the interloping stars are numbered and indicated by a star symbol, while end points are indicated by x. The starting point of the solar orbit is indicated by a circle of radius 20 000 au. The solar orbit is by construction initially confined to the x-z plane, and departs significantly from that plane only after a close interaction with star number 3.
