Orbit and Ephemeris Updates for Comet 1996 B2 Hyakutake

Don Yeomans - JPL

Mar. 12, 1996

Additional observations through March 6, 1996 have been used to update the orbit, ephemeris, and error analysis. Although very uncertain, the formal osculating orbital period is now 15,250 years.

This comet will not approach the Earth's orbit at either orbital node so that
an associated meteor shower is unlikely.


The apparent total magnitude predictions in the following ephemeris are rough
