    • Abstract

       

      We describe a method that does not use any orbital parameters, to arrive at the position and mass of a new celestial object, using high-precision orbital state vector data of the rest of the objects in the system. As an illustration of this approach, we rediscover Neptune with remarkable accuracy.
