Orbital Diagram for Chelyabinsk Meteor
      #5719002 - 03/07/13 06:26 PM

Aldo Vitagliano, the creator of the Solex astronomical numerical integration program, has provided me with position and velocity data to be entered into Solex for the Chelyabinsk meteor that struck Russia on 2013 FEB 15. This allowed me to create an “overhead” diagram of the intersecting orbits of the Earth and meteor as viewed from far north of the Sun. It can be seen at the bottom of my asteroids webpage: www.CurtRenz.com/asteroids
