I knew Jupiter was going to have something to do with it.

Isn't it the only body in the solar system that has the common center of gravity with the Sun outside the sun itself?

Sure, they fill us with all the backstory, but only tease about the final determination of the final calculated Solar System Barycenter.

Do you think that was on purpose??

I think it's more complex than most folks could handle is the reason.
