The Argument of Obliquity property of an object represents the orientation of the object's [[wikipedia:Rotation_around_a_fixed_axis|rotation axis]] around a reference axis determined by the [[Rotation Relative to]] property. If Rotation Relative to is set to the [[Simulation Grid]], this reference axis is the y-axis of the Simulation Grid. If Rotation Relative to is set to the Orbital Plane, the reference axis is the object's [[Orbit|orbital]] axis, defined by its [[Inclination]] and [[Longitude of the Ascending Node]].

When the Argument of Obliquity is zero and the [[Obliquity]] is 90°, the object's rotation axis will lie in the reference plane, pointed in the direction of the positive x-axis of the Simulation Grid (if Rotation Relative to is set to the Simulation Grid) or the direction of the orbit's [[Apocenter Distance|apocenter]] (if Rotation Relative to is set to the Orbital Plane). Non-zero Argument of Obliquity values represents how far the rotation axis is rotated from this direction.
