Does the same thing as comet, but with multiple trajectories at once

Thank you so much for the file!!! I was wondering if the code can be tweaked to show multiple comets with the same y-value at any give time (as opposed to this version where the comet heads are located on a hypothetical vertical line and have the same x-value at any given time)?

Glad it was helpful! I am aware of your problem but can't think of an easy way to fix it. I based the function on the MATLAB built-in comet.m so it carries over all of those issues. I'd just use it for rough visualization within MATLAB

Thank you, this has been very useful for making a simulation of the dynamics of vortices in BEC's for my thesis. But I was wondering, is there any way to keep the tails when saving the figure?
