Comet for Celestia

Post #1by gironde » 30.07.2018, 15:55

C / 1973 E1, Kohoutek, is a hyperbolic comet observed on December 28, 1973.
To be able to view it in Celestia or track it, I used asteroid.cmod and comet.jpg (generic mesh and texture). The Radius used is certainly not good because its diameter is not known. Its orbital cycle seems to be 75,000 years old.


I set up a sun-centric .xyzv file that provides the estimated positions from 1973 to 2040. (JPL HORIZONS)

Currently, it has passed Makemake's orbit and is destined to leave the Solar System.
