Hi Brad - it's a 2-dimensional rendition and doesn't show perspective, so you can't tell from that whether the orbit's in the ecliptic plane or any other plane for that matter (other than the colour clue of the two shades of blue representing above & below the ecliptic). It's different in the database browser where you can toggle it around to get the perspective.

Cheers -
