Orbit Diagram
Note: Make sure you have Java enabled on your browser to see the applet. This applet is provided as a 3D orbit visualization tool. The applet was implemented using 2-body methods, and hence should not be used for determining accurate long-term trajectories (over several years or decades) or planetary encounter circumstances. For accurate long-term ephemerides, please instead use our Horizons system.

Note: If the applet has stopped working because of a recent Java upgrade, here is a possible workaround.
Orbit Viewer

Additional Notes: the orbits shown in the applet are color coded. The planets are white lines, and the asteroid/comet is a blue line. The bright white line indicates the portion of the orbit that is above the ecliptic plane, and the darker portion is below the ecliptic plane. Likewise for the asteroid/comet orbit, the light blue indicates the portion above the ecliptic plane, and the dark blue the portion below the ecliptic plane.

Orbit Viewer applet originally written and kindly provided by Osamu Ajiki (AstroArts), and further modified by Ron Baalke (JPL).

5132 Maynard           Discovered 1990 June 22 by H. E. Holt at Palomar.
Named in honor of Owen E. Maynard, who played a major role in the achievement of the first manned landing on the moon. An engineer in the Apollo program from the beginning, he helped design the Apollo spacecraft and oversaw the design of the command-service and lunar modules. He led the team that developed the complex lunar mission flight plans. As chief of the Systems Engineering Division, he was responsible for all aspects of the construction and testing of the Apollo hardware. He planned the early Apollo test flights, including that of the first lunar landing, Apollo 11. Name suggested and citation prepared by R. Attwood.
