From matthen:
"Streamlines exposing the structure of a gravitational field surrounding multiple masses. Streamlines run in the direction that a mass would be pulled within the field. Between masses, the streamlines form crosses at what are called Lagrangian points where the pulls cancel each other out. [code]"
