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.

8871 Svanberg           Discovered 1992 Mar. 1 at the European Southern Observatory in the course of the Uppsala-ESO Survey of Asteroids and Comets.
Gustaf Svanberg (1802-1882), professor of astronomy at Uppsala University from 1842 to 1878, built the present building of Uppsala Astronomical Observatory and founded the meteorological observatory. His autobiography gives a good insight into the academic life in Uppsala during the nineteenth century.
