Notes
-----
- Points that have not been taken into consideration when computing the trajectory have '1' in the 'Ignore' column.
- The time already has time offsets applied to it.
- 'meas1' and 'meas2' are given input points.
- X, Y, Z are ECI (Earth-Centered Inertial) positions of projected lines of sight on the radiant line.
- Zc is the observed zenith distance of the entry angle, while the Zg is the entry zenith distance corrected for Earth's gravity.
- Latitude (deg) and Longitude (deg) are in WGS84 coordinates, while Height (m) is in the EGM96 datum. There values are coordinates of each point on the radiant line.
- Jacchia (1955) deceleration equation fit was done on the lag.
- Right ascension and declination in the table are given in the epoch of date for the corresponding JD, per every point.
- 'RA and Dec obs' are the right ascension and declination calculated from the observed values, while the 'RA and Dec line' are coordinates of the lines of sight projected on the fitted radiant line. The coordinates are in the epoch of date, and NOT J2000!. 'Azim and alt line' are thus corresponding azimuthal coordinates.
- 'Vel prev avg' is the average velocity including all previous points up to the given point. For the first 4 points this velocity is computed as the average velocity of those 4 points.
