Near-Earth Comets

J2000 heliocentric ecliptic orbital elements of 160 Near-Earth Comets

The dataset includes all the standard orbital elements for a given Near-Earth Comet, such as eccentricity, inclination, and perihelion and aphelion distance. It also includes acceleration-related force parameters for comets for which those factors are known.
