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.

229762 G!kúnǁ'hòmdímà           Discovered 2007 Oct. 19 by M. E. Schwamb, M. E. Brown and D. Rabinowitz at Palomar. Satellite discovered by K. S. Noll using the Hubble Space Telescope.
G!kúnǁ'hòmdímà is the beautiful aardvark girl of Jul'hoan mythology who sometimes appears in stories as a python and sometimes as an elephant. She defends her people and punishes wrongdoers using gǁámígǁàmì spines, a raincloud full of hail, and her magical oryx horn G!ò'é !Hú. The satellite is being named G!ò'é !Hú.
