Introduction

The following improved orbital elements, are from 763 observations 1991 September 14 to 2012 January 15, including full planetary and non-gravitational effect of type II, and relativity effect of the sun.

The mean residual is 0.43 arc second.

Elements

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