KEPLERIAN ORBITAL ELEMENTS OF 2I/BORISOV
(from JPL Horizons, 9 October 2019, 402 observations over 37 days)
a = −0.852093539281182 AU
e = 3.354075587715023
i = 44.05688099659861°
Ω = 308.1430298932183°
ω = 209.1418223232404°
T = 2458826.0739990142 JD
The calculated hyperbolic excess speed, from these elements, is 32.266 km/sec.
