For accurate long-term ephemerides, please instead use our Horizons system.This orbit viewer was implemented using two-body methods, and hence should not be used for determining accurate long-term trajectories (over several years or decades) or planetary encounter circumstances.

4099 Wiggins           Discovered 1988 Jan. 13 by H. Debehogne at the European Southern Observatory.
Patrick Wiggins (b. 1949) spent over 26 years with Hansen Planetarium in Salt Lake City, educating the children and adults of Utah through programs at the planetarium, in schools and via the media. After retiring from the planetarium he continued as a NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador.
