Which objects? Earth and the comet? About 1.4 astronomical units. Between STEREO Behind and the comet the distance is about half an astronomical unit.
 Quoting: Dr. Astro


I meant the comet and the asteroid?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29213827


1.36 AUs.
 Quoting: Dr. Astro


So roughly 96+ million miles apart, no easily mistaken for each other?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29213827


No, not at all. It's not nearly as inclined either.

Actually, I truly follow the dictum of this site at the bottom of the page----------don't believe anything you read on this site. It's also that I don't tend to trust the Government telling me what's what either.

I was simply replying to the person above who seemed to be placing trust in Gov. sites.

Would it calm your mind if I were to calculate the orbit of C/2012 V4 myself using nothing but amateur astrometric measurements and then load that into Celestia and see if it still matches what STEREO-B HI2 sees?

 Quoting: Dr. Astro

Oh, sure! Absolutely! Be creative!
 Quoting: Éireann


As you can see at the end, C/2012 V4 using an orbit I calculated using only amateur observations (I excluded every professional measurement one by one at the beginning) still appears right where it appeared using the "official" orbit in my original video.

Thanks! I should point out that the website that gets pulled up is a local file generated by FindOrb itself as a "pseudo-MPEC" which automatically formats the orbital data in the same format as the minor planet center. In this case, the orbital data is all amateur, not a single professional observation in the mix.
