Looking for suggestions on a free-of-charge publishing International Astrophysics Journal with a good Impact Factor

I would like to publish my Scientific Preprint Paper free-of-charge in an international Astrophysics journal with a satisfactory Impact Factor. Can you please suggest such a journal?
I have published my Research Results on a New Orbital Model for Moving Bodies in the Universe that I am asserting as a result of my scientific analysis, which can be found below:
"Everything Is A Circle: A New Model For Orbits Of Bodies In The Universe"
I will be presenting this work to the general scientific community at #COSPAR in Sydney, Australia, which will be broadcast Live according to Congress schedule on February 2, 2021
and will be available as Video-On-Demand in more detail.
To provide an introductory idea for readers and scientific community in general, here is a short video giving an overview description of the main and most significant findings:

Also a good suggestion would be Astronomy&Astrophysics with impact factor of ~ 5.8 as of 2020. There are no page charges for authors from sponsoring countries (find the list below):

Hi, I am not working on this topic but it seems that for the following Springer journal:
Astrophysics ans Space Science https://www.springer.com/journal/10509/
publication fees are required only for "open access" papers.

You may also consider "Astronomical Notes", besides MNRAS the oldest astronomical journal in the world: https://www.aip.de/AN/ . See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astronomische_Nachrichten for Impact Factor.

I published in Astrophysics and Space Science. They published the complete article on Researchgate for free! Everybody can look at it!

Could that Open Access be after some time Patrick Geryl ? Because as Richard Epenoy has said, on their website it seems that only traditional publishing is free of charge.

They give you a link to their website where your article is on the day of publication. So everybody can read it immediately! My co author published it on his website. And as you can see they published it for free on Researchgate!

Hey you can check for "Physics Review D" and "European Journal of Physics C" they have good impact factor and only charged for open access.

Since your research is presented in COSPAR, the relevant journal for the corresponding paper is the "Advances in Space Research" (apart from the proceedings); it is free of charge with a decent (~1.8) impact factor.
Another journal with significantly greater impact factor, and free of charge, is the Astronomy&Astrophysics (~ 5.6).

MNRAS has a similar impact factor (>5, if memory serves). The choice betwen the two depends on the target audience.

You can find free and good impact factor journals related to your field in the master journal list of Web of Science.
