baby OD

If the baby is at ( 0, 0, 1.5 ) with the velocity ( 0.7, 0.7, 0 ), the orbital elements include I=90 deg, e=0.47, Omega=-135 deg (+360 deg, I guess), and omega=90 deg. I don’t know about a or M.

For what it is worth, for this year’s unfortunate baby, I get

a=2.7798, e=0.23435, I=12.028 deg, Omega=161.52 deg, omega=322.46 deg, M=327.60 deg.
