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.

7739 Čech           Discovered 1982 Feb. 14 by L. Brozek at Klet.
Named in memory of Eduard Čech (1893-1960), Czech mathematician, professor at Charles University in Prague and Masaryk University in Brno. One of his papers, On bicompact spaces, introduced what today is called the Stone-Čech compactification of regular topological spaces. His research in topology is fundamental, but his work was also important in the development of functional analysis. Name proposed by J. Ticha and Z. Moravec following a number of suggestions from Charles University.
