I realize this is off topic as pertains to navigation, but I would appreciate it if anybody could point me to a web page that talks about the MPC file format for getting comets into Stellarium.
I am interested in entering a historical comet into Stellarium. I know these things about the comet:
- perihelion distance
- argument of perihelion
- longitude of ascending node
- Perihelion date
I found link on a page from the Rochester Institute of Technology that would have, allegedly, explained the MPC file format...but the link was dead.
