This tool allows you to display ephemerides of the Sun, the Moon, the planets as well as comets and asteroids deduced from their orbital elements. To be able to get ephemerides for asteroids and comets, you must already have loaded their orbital elements through the Asteroids and Comets tool. See the section How to display asteroids and comets which gives step by step guidance on how to load orbital elements. The section How to declare orbital elements in a file provides the syntax to use in order to declare orbital elements for asteroids and comets in a text file.
