Abstract:

Over 2000 observations from 60 stations were used with the RAE computer program PROP 6 to determine accurately the orbit of Nimbus 1 rocket, 1964-52B, at 25 epochs between March and September 1970. This six-month period covered the main variations resulting from 15th-order resonance, with exact 15th-order resonance on 5 June 1970.
