Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Hi Toutatis.
Can you please upload TESS ssc file?

Thanks a lot.
Goofy :smile:

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

I was attentive to what you emphasize but that's what I find on wikipedia: Half-major axis a : half of the distance between the pericenter and the apocenter (the largest diameter of the ellipse). This parameter defines the absolute size of the orbit. It only makes sense in the case of an elliptical...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Toutatis, it seems to me that SoHo is in orbit around the point of Lagrange L1 In Celestia, it's Earth-L1. It is in this orbit from 14-02-1996. Beginning "1996 02 14" Yes Gironde... I know... and these orbital elements from HORIZONS, for geocentric orbit... but sure, everyone can correct ...
