Asteroids: Data Files:
Jovian Trojans

Summary:Complete Ephemeris of Jovian Trojans. WARNING! This adds over 1,000 asteroids!
Description:This add-on package contains 4 SSC files which provide the orbital elements for some 1000+ Jovian Trojans. The Keplerian orbital elements in these files have been modified so that their orbital periods and SemiMajorAxis values have been set to be the same as Jupiter's. As a result, the asteroids will not wander away from the Lagrange points, but will stay synchronized with Jupiter. The orbital data was obtained from the IAU's Minor Planet Center.
