Orbits

Brian Marsden's Catalogue of Cometary Orbits has been the standard source for comet orbits since 1972. This page is primarily meant for the very serious amateur and professional astronomer. During the writing of my Cometography series I took every orbit I found, converted the perihelion date to Universal Time and the orbital elements to equinox 2000. Since it was already finished I have begun posting it here.
