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.

27922 Mascheroni           Discovered 1996 Dec. 8 by P. G. Comba at Prescott.
Lorenzo Mascheroni (1750-1800), professor at the University of Pavia and author of a treatise on statics, proved that all plane construction problems that can be solved with ruler and compass can also be solved with compass alone.
