Halley’s comet at your current date, the actual solution depends on

at 86,400 sec/day (exact) and 365.25 days/year (approximate). The
date of the next perihelion passage is then approximately March 13, 2062. To calculate the position of Halley's comet on October 29, 1988,
we need to find the time interval since perihelion passage, t  To. This is, for the given date, 993 days, or 8.579 x 107 seconds. Tb?

the elliptical orbit is quite high. The initial approximation (2.65}
is of relatively little value, and relatively many iterations of the
Newton — Raphson method are needed. For a much smaller eccentricity,
this is not true. Also, for a small eccentricity, the three anomalies

e=0, so E a M. Substituting this into Kepler’s equation in the form Ef
= M + e sinE led to equation (2.65) E a M + e sin M To continue this process, substitute the above approximation for E
into the right hand side of Kepler's equation, E = 14 + e sinE, to
obtain" E a M + e sin { M + e sin M } This form is rather messy, and includes the unfamiliar sine of a sine
function. If we apply the trigonometric identity for thesine of a sum, the
above takes the form E a M + e{ sinM cos( e sinM } + cosM sin{ e sinM }} How, in this form we can profitably apply the assumption that the orbital eccentricity e is small. If e << 1, then the cosine and sine
above can be approximated as cos( e sinM } a l a sin( e sinM } a e SinM éyg WE Mo/ _ Hana/w! #fegéoﬁéw. 4/23 These are just the usual small angle approximations of sine and cosine, where the eccentricity e ensures that the 'angle’ remains
small. Inserting these into Kepler’s equation, we have E w M + e sinM + e2 cosM sinM = M + e sinM + «3— e2 sin 2M 2 This is the desired result, involving powers of the eccentricity and sines of multiples of the mean anomaly M. This process can be
continued to any order of approximation. ﬂag/{u [he 00/ .'
