When you’re juggling with gravity, the balls move in parabolas.

When you’re Space Juggling, the pattern is part of the family of “roulette” curves.

The Space Juggling roulettes are created by rolling a line around a circle without letting the line slip. You then track a point which is fixed to the line but can be offset from it.

Roulettes are the family of curves which are created by rolling any curve along another and tracking a generator point. As far as I know, the Space Juggling curves do not have a name (fixed circle, rolling line). Though many roulettes are named, such as Trochoid, Cycloid, Limaçon, Cardioid, Astroid, etc.
