I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'celestial circuit' is the definition.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for orbit that I've seen before include "Sphere of activity" , "Circle - influence" , "Circling path" , "Path of a planet or satellite" , "Circumgyration" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
