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.

8552 Hyoichi           Discovered 1995 Apr. 20 by A. Nakamura at Kuma Kogen.
Named in honor of Hyoichi Kohno (b. 1958), Japanese adventurer, born in Ehime prefecture, where this minor planet was discovered. Since 1980, he has boated down the Yukon River; climbed Mt. McKinley (6194 m) and Cerro Aconcagua (6959 m), the highest mountains in North and South America; walked across Patagonia; walked from Los Angeles to New York; walked from Algeria to Togo across the Sahara desert; and so on. In 1997, he became the first Japanese to walk to the North Pole alone.
