EDITED!!!!!

--- the FINAL orbit from Dec. 03 2013 from HORIZONS

comet c/2012 S1 AKA ISON




the below ssc is the final seeing as it broke up passing The Sun --

Code:

"ISON:C/2012 S1" "Sol"

    {
       Class "comet"
       Mesh    "ISON.bin.cmod"
       
       Radius               0.5    # guess http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/swift/bursts/ison.html
       Albedo               0.2      # guess
       Orientation [ 90 1 0 0 ]
       OrbitFrame { EclipticJ2000 { Center "Sol" }}
       OrbitColor [ 0.9 0.1 0.1 ]
       Beginning  "1900 01 01 00:00:00.000"
       Ending     "2014 01 01 00:00:00.000" # set to Jan1 ,it was being looked for ( r.i.p.)
       
       SpiceOrbit
       {
         Kernel "ISON.final.bsp"
         Target "1003203"
         Origin "10"   
         Period  10
         BoundingRadius 1e10
       }     
       PrecessingRotation
   {
       Inclination       18     # random
       AscendingNode    90    # random
       Period          10     # random
       PrecessionPeriod   0.314  # random

Comet 2014 "Siding Spring" C/2013 A1

---------- edit the below section is out of date -----------------
in the same ftp folder
pub/naif/generic_kernels/spk/comets/
is also the 2014 "Siding Spring" C/2013 A1 comet
so just as above a rather simple ssc file can be made
-- DL the "siding-spring.bsp" ---
ftp://naif.jpl.nasa.gov/pub/naif/generi ... spring.bsp
------------- the above is out of date -----------------


2014 "Siding Spring" C/2013 A1

the data for the SPICE orbit is in HORZONS
use the telnet interface

--- save as : SidingSpring.SPICE.ssc --- UPDATED on April 04 ,2014
Code:
"Siding-Spring:C/2013 A1" "Sol"

    {
       Class "comet"
       Mesh    "SidingSpring.bin.cmod"
      # Texture ""       # coded into the cmod
      # NormalMap ""     # coded into the cmod
      Orientation [ 90 1 0 0 ]
       Radius               4.0
       Albedo               0.2

       OrbitFrame { EclipticJ2000 { Center "Sol" }}

       Beginning  "1900 01 01 00:00:00.000 "
       Ending      "2101 01 01 00:00:00.000"
       
       SpiceOrbit
       {
         Kernel "SidingSpring.bsp"
         Target "1003228"
         Origin "10"   
         Period  10
         BoundingRadius 1e10

--- Edit ---
this is the PRE Rosetta encounter mesh and data
it is so old that i have removed the links
see the post farther along in this thread


Comet 67P/Churyumov_Gerasimenko

there will be a all in one zip at the end , but for PRACTICE you might want to at least use the telnet HORIZONS interface to grab the
67P/Churyumov_Gerasimenko .xfr spice data
then run xfr2bin on it to make a .bsp

this is another rather simple one , like the two in the preceding posts
Code:
"67p : 67P/Churyumov_Gerasimenko" "Sol"

{
  Class "comet"
  Mesh    "67p.bin.cmod"
# Texture ""       # coded into the cmod
  Radius               2.455
  Albedo               0.2

  OrbitFrame { EclipticJ2000 { Center "Sol" }}

  Beginning  "1900 01 01 00:00:00.000"
  Ending     "2101 01 01 00:00:00.000"

  SpiceOrbit
  {
    Kernel "Churyumov_Gerasimenko.bsp"
    Target "1000012"
    Origin "10"
    Period  9
    BoundingRadius 1e10
  }
  PrecessingRotation
  {
    Inclination        10      # random
    AscendingNode      5       # random
    Period             15      # random
    PrecessionPeriod   5.0     # random
  }
}

as was posted on

there is a shape file for this comet
very lores for now and WILL improve once Rosetta goes into orbit and fallows it in
for this i am using a "added detail" mesh

a full add on , just drop into the extras folder



The 13.2 MiB zip contains a 10.6 Mib cmod a 3.8 MiB 4k texture
and the raw data used for the cmod

UPDATE

there is an updated mesh ( NO!!! texture yet ,only a shape file 3d mesh )

the zip is a 2.7 meg *.obj mesh , it will need converting to cmod for use

with the recently posted KBO "2015_RR245"
A body a bit smaller than Pluto approx. 696 Km Dia. and a 700 year orbit
-- just something i am playing with in blender
-- the lowres cmod 5 meg and 4k normalmap
Image

the zip on my G-drive
"2015_RR245.zip" -- 21.1 MiB
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6ZYAd ... sp=sharing

2015_RR245 is in Horizons so it is rather easy to make a spice kernel , but it is only 201 years of the 700 orbit

and i am betting that using just one point and the horizons web based orbital data will do
Code:
 {
    OrbitFrame { EclipticJ2000 { Center "Sol" }}
    BodyFrame  { EquatorJ2000  { Center "Sol" }}
    Ending      "1900 02 01 00:00:00.000"  # added 1 month

    EllipticalOrbit
    {
      Epoch            2415051.500000000        # 1900 02 07
      Eccentricity     5.823389488677905E-01        # well Ecc.
      AscendingNode    2.113894062683690E+02        # Deg.
      SemiMajorAxis    8.167565386666841E+01        # Km.
      ArgOfPericenter  2.613102772986378E+02        # Deg.
      MeanAnomaly      2.654866603878056E+02        # Deg.
      Inclination      7.572347954392313E+00        # Deg.
      Period           2.696108445474537E+05        # days
    }

or use the spice kernel from the telnet horizons
and this
Code:

 "2015 RR245" "Sol"
{
  Class           "dwarfplanet"
  Mesh            "2015_RR245.bin.cmod"

updated 67p

Image Image Image

using the spice location data from Horizons, and rotation data from Rosetta pds kernels
this IS a big cmod 55 MiB so...
This Comet is using the SOL center and not the barycenter

67p.zip - 46.2 MiB
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6ZYAd ... sp=sharing

a rather short ssc
Code:

"67p : 67P/Churyumov_Gerasimenko" "Sol"

{
  Class "comet"
  Mesh "67p.navcam.bin.cmod"
  Radius               2.455
  Albedo               0.2


  OrbitFrame { EclipticJ2000 { Center "Sol" }}

  Beginning  "1900 01 01 00:00:00.000"
  Ending     "2101 01 01 00:00:00.000"

  SpiceOrbit
  {
    Kernel "Churyumov_Gerasimenko.bsp"
    Target "1000012"
    Origin "10"
    Period  9
    BoundingRadius 1e10
  }
 SpiceRotation
    {
      Kernel
      [
     
      "naif0012.tls"
      "catt_dv_238_01_______00320.bc"
      "ros_churyumov_v01.tf"
      ]
     
      Frame   "67P/C-G_CK"
    }
