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.

17216 Scottstuart           Discovered 2000 Jan. 7 by the Lowell Observatory Near-Earth Object Search at the Anderson Mesa Station.
Joseph Scott Stuart (b. 1971) derived a bias-corrected diameter distribution of the near-earth-asteroid population through a combination of discovery statistics and spectroscopic and albedo properties. He has also developed moving-object detection software for LINEAR.
