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.

9548 Fortran           Discovered 1985 Feb. 13 by Spacewatch at Kitt Peak.
FORmula TRANslator, the first widely distributed symbolic programming language for digital computers, was developed at IBM in New York by John Backus and co-workers from 1953 to 1957. It made computers more accessible to scientists and engineers by freeing them of burdensome programming in assembly language.
