This is a web interface to the EPH-2 program, which uses routines from JPL, USNO, Keesey, Yeomans, Meeus, and others. Obviously, use this at your own risk. For instance, for interplanetary navigation, I recommend you check out Horizon, the JPL ephemerides generator, or the Minor Planet Center's ephemerides generator. THEY know what they are doing.

EPH-2 computes the ephemerides of all the objects in the selected database(s); this interfaces allows the user to sort and select the result to his taste.

This version uses updated element files from MPC
