Abstract: It is shown that the curvature of spacetime, a possible net electric chargeon the sun, a small positive cosmological constant and the oblateness of thesun, in conjunction with solar radiation pressure SPR, affect the boundorbital motion of solar sails and lead to deviations from Kepler-s third lawfor heliocentric and non-Keplerian orbits. With regards to the Lense-Thirringeffect, the SRP increases the amount of precession per orbit for polar orbits.Non-Keplerian polar orbits exhibit an analog of the Lense-Thirring effect inwhich the orbital plane precesses around the sun.
