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.

8270 Winslow           Discovered 1989 May 2 by E. F. Helin at Palomar.
Named in honor of John Seymour Winslow, a friend of the discoverer's husband, Ron, since grade school. John graduated from Caltech with a degree in physics and later returned for a master's degree in electrical engineering. He developed the equipment used to master the MCA video disc, and later became a partner in Optical Disc Corporation, a firm that provides mastering equipment for compact discs. This minor planet was presented on the occasion of the 45th reunion of John and Ron's Caltech Class of '53.
