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.

15710 Böcklin           Discovered 1989 Jan. 11 by F. Borngen at Tautenburg.
Swiss painter Arnold Böcklin (1827-1901) created landscapes and figures in a richly colored monumental-pathetic style. Frequently, his subjects are from classical mythology and are animated by a grand imagination.
