I've just revised extrasolar.ssc with good elements for HD 209458, so that
the observed transits are reproduced.
In due course I should be able to firm up the orbits for other extrasolars
slightly, too - since the argument of pericentre and the epoch of pericentre
passage are determined, we could at least have the orbits orientated with
the correct pericentres and orbital positions, even though the inclination
and ascending node on the sky would be unknown. My plan would be to leave
all the orbits otherwise as they are, in the plane of the ecliptic (unless
this orientation generates unreal transit events). Seems like the minimum
introduction of imaginary data.
