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.

21229 Sušil           Discovered 1995 Sept. 22 by L. Šarounová at Ondřejov.
František Sušil (1804-1868), a great collector of Moravian folk songs, published almost 2400 songs in his compilation Moravské národní písně ("Moravian Folk Songs"). By walking the length and breadth of Moravia, he was able to record both lyrics and music directly from the local people. The name was suggested by L. Vašta.
