Computations by: Francesco Manca,..Piero Sicoli,..Augusto Testa (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This list includes minor planets with MOID (Minimum Orbital Intersection Distance) lower than 0.0100 AU relative to
planets Mercury , Venus and Mars.
Their motions were integrated, as a function of the orbit uncertainty, covering a timespan from 7 to 200 years (software package developed at Sormano Observatory by A. Testa) in order to point out encounters within 0.0200 AU from each planet.
A list of minor bodies with a nominal planet-miss distance within 0.5 million km (0.003342 AU), extracted from this page is available at CEIP (Close Encounters Inner Planets).
A similar list with close approaches to the Earth is available at TECA (Table Earth Close Approaches).
The following service, courtesy of the Minor Planet Center, is intended as support and in addition to the objects available in the PCEL list for which follow-up or recovery is needed. The service will return all objects based on criteria specified by the user.
