Resumen:
Comet C/1854L1(Klinkerfues)is one of a large number of comets with parabolic orbits. Given that there are sufficient observations of thecomet, 262 in right ascension and 260 in declination,it proves possible to calculate a betterorbit. The calculations are based on a 12th order predictor?corrector method. The comet's orbit is highly elliptical, e=0.99866 and,from calculated mean errors,statistically different from a parabola. The comet will not return for atleast10,400 years and thus represents no immediate NEO threat.
