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.

Jindřich Šilhán (1944-2000) was a major contributor to the development of visual observations in the Czech and Slovak Republics. He observed eclipsing binaries and organized a program to monitor them. His former students are some of the leaders of public observatories.
