The ecliptic longitude, in radians. This specifies an object's position along the ecliptic plane relative to the "First Point of Aries", which is the Sun's position in the sky at the Vernal Equinox, with positive angles representing east.

A bit of trivia: the first point of Aries is currently in the constellation Pisces, due to the precession of the earth's axis.
