Talk:Proper orbital elements
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
|WikiProject Physics||(Rated Start-class, Mid-importance)|
Is really "Proper elements" a concept used by astronomers? Does it mean "any Kepler orbit that gives a better long term fit then the osculating one"?
Strange concept! Should possibly the article be removed?
- The existence of the concept does seem to be supported by a scholarly reference. -- Beland (talk) 17:44, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
