An orbit is carrying a ball in a circle around another ball
that's in the air. It makes the balls do things you couldn't do
by always throwing the balls.
Juggle a left-middle-right pattern. After a while, as your
(say) left hand goes to make the "middle" throw, your right hand
starts to carry its ball over the middle ball in an arch.
As the middle ball peaks, the ball is carried underneath the ball,
completing the circle. Then throw the right ball up, and make a circle
around the middle ball with the left hand.
Start the orbits very soon, before you throw the middle ball. The
right hand makes circles to the left, the left hand orbits to the right.
