Introduction

The following improved orbital elements, are from 485 observations 1994 May 6 to 2014 July 4, including full planetary and non-gravitational effect of type II, and relativity effect of the sun.

The mean residual is 0.62 arc second.

Elements

Orbital elements given with respect to the mean ecliptic and equinox of J2000.
