I want to simulate Solar Planet's motion with mathematica, so I typed like this. The Code

But there were some errors.

I can't figure out what is wrong and how to fix it. The Error

Inside Graphics the object should be gathered within curly brackets: Graphics[{....}].

You did not put the curly braces. After the correction, we get the desired animation

G = 1; M = 1; \[Omega][r_] := Sqrt[G*M/r^3]; t0 = 4*Pi;
Animate[Graphics[{Red, Disk[{0, 0}, .2], Blue, 
   Disk[{Cos[\[Omega][1]*t], Sin[\[Omega][1]*t]}, .1], Brown, 
   Disk[{1.52*Cos[\[Omega][1.52]*t], 1.52*Sin[\[Omega][1.52]*t]}, .1],
    Black, Line[{{0, 0}, {Cos[\[Omega][1]*t], Sin[\[Omega][1]*t]}}], 
      Sin[\[Omega][1]*t]}, {1.52*Cos[\[Omega][1.52]*t], 
  PlotRange -> {{-2, 2}, {-2, 2}}], {t, 0, t0}]

Thank you very much.
