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.

7648 Tomboles           Discovered 1989 Oct. 8 by Y. Mizuno and T. Furuta at Kani.
British amateur astronomer Tom Boles (b. 1944) operates his robotic telescopes from Coddenham, Suffolk, every clear night. His 116 supernovae represent a record for an observer in the U.K. President of the British Astronomical Association during 2003--2005, he discovered (84417) Ritabo in 2002.
