    You have this all together. Maybe model this with Celestia.

  • 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.
