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.

11755 Paczynski           Discovered 1960 Sept. 24 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld on Palomar Schmidt plates taken by T. Gehrels.
Polish-born astrophysicist Bohdan Paczynski (b. 1940), at Princeton University since 1982, is known for his theoretical work on \gamma -ray bursters---he was an early proponent of their being at cosmological distances---and for leading searches for gravitational lensing by low-mass stars and substellar objects.
