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.

8681 Burs           Discovered 1992 Mar. 2 at the European Southern Observatory in the course of the Uppsala-ESO Survey of Asteroids and Comets.
Burs is a small parish on the Swedish island of Gotland. Gustav Edman (1881-1912), well known for his height (2.46 meters) and strength, was born in Burs. Burs also has the remains of the largest house ( 67 x 11 meters) in Sweden from the Roman Iron Age.
