Objective: The periodic orbits around smaller and larger primaries are studied in the Sun-Jupiter and Sun-Earth systems, considering smaller primary as an oblate spheroid. Methods: We used the Poincare surface section method to find the periodic orbits and discussed the differences between these orbits with and without oblateness. Findings: Different trajectories are drawn with the change of Jacobi constant and radiation pressure. Size variations, location, and eccentricity of an orbit around smaller primary are observed due to oblateness effect of the Jupiter and Earth. Oblateness of the smaller primary and radian pressure of the bigger primary have a significant effect on eccentricity, orbit shape, size, and position in phase space. Novelty : Small solar system bodies, such as asteroids and comets in the Sun-Jupiter and Sun-Earth systems, can be explored using periodic orbits. Perturbation caused by oblateness of the smaller primary must be understood and addressed during human exploration missions.
