Mean argument of perihelion, [omega], changes in this time range its value from about 356[degrees] through 0[degrees] 4750 yr ago to 79[degrees] 1000 yr in the future, that is, changing its value between 4750 yr backwards and 1000 yr in the future with velocity of about +49.46" /yr.
From the NEODyS data set (, we can take the computed values of proper elements for the NEOs, that is, the precession rate g of perihelion (the frequency of perihelion), that is equal to the sum of changes in the argument of perihelion, [omega], and in the longitude of the ascending node, [OMEGA], of the orbit of the asteroid, expressed in arc seconds per year and the precession rate s of the ascending node (the frequency of the ascending node), that is equal to the change in the longitude of the ascending node, [OMEGA], of the orbit of the asteroid, expressed in arc seconds per year.
