Hello,

this seems like it should be easy but I am beating my head on the wall here.

I am trying to fill in everything rad<=1 in a polar plot (this is a spacecraft orbit trace and the circle is the Earth) and can't seem to get it.

from pylab import *

from matplotlib.patches import Circle

fig=figure()

ax = fig.add_subplot(111, polar=True)

ax.plot([2,2,2,2], [2,3,4,5])

el = Circle((0,0), radius=1,facecolor='black', axes=ax)

ax.add_artist(el)

draw()

# also get the same result plotting with polar()

and of course this dumbell looks nothing like the earth

thanks much for any help,

Brian
