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.

2413 van de Hulst (6816 P-L)          Discovered 1960-Sep-24 by PLS at Palomar
These planets have all been discovered as a result of the Palomar survey of faint minor planets and subsequently identified with planets observed at other oppositions. In Sept. and Oct. 1960, T. Gehrels exposed 130 plates with the 122 cm Schmidt camera at Palomar. In the following years C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld measured these plates astrometrically and photometrically at Leiden. P. Herget, Cincinnati, computed the orbits of the planets found on the NORC computer, Dahlgren, Virginia, USA.
Note: "planet" implies "minor planet"
