Abstract: We studied the available scientific literature on the Tunguska event of 30 June 1908 to obtain parameter sets of the Tunguska Cosmic Body atmospheric dynamics. We performed a comparative analysis by means of available theoretical models and with the help of interplanetary dynamics, and we excluded unphysical orbits. Our results indicate a very high probability that the TCB was an asteroid.
