How does Special Relativity Effect an Orbit?

This graphic image of how Special Relativity effects an orbit was extracted from the evolutionary algorithm orbit-gravity-sim-11.exe using scenario [26] in that software. It should be a fairly simple logical deduction to realize that Einstein's formula for the limit at the velocity-of-light causes a reduction in expected velocity when compared to the standard Newtonian formula. A reduction in velocity for an orbital body can only result in an inward spiral. If the orbit is less eccentric (more circular) then the inward spiral becomes increasingly less.
