Please note
: When the NASA get more detailed informations of a distant space object they may improve the orbit determination and logically a changed orbital period will result in a changed tone frequency.


Remarque
: Lorsque la NASA reçoit des informations plus détaillées sur un objet spatial éloigné, elle peut améliorer la détermination de l'orbite et logiquement, un changement de période orbitale entraîne un changement de fréquence audio.


Nota bene
: Quando la NASA riceve informazioni più dettagliate su un oggetto spaziale remoto, può migliorare la determinazione dell'orbita e logicamente un periodo orbitale modificato porta a una variazione della frequenza audio.


Tenga en cuenta
: cuando la NASA recibe información más detallada sobre un objeto espacial remoto, puede mejorar la determinación de la órbita y, lógicamente, un cambio en el período orbital conduce a un cambio en la frecuencia de audio.


Bitte beachten
: Wenn die NASA detailliertere Informationen über ein entferntes Raumobjekt erhält, kann sie die Orbitbestimmung verbessern und logischerweise führt eine geänderte Orbitalperiode zu einer veränderten Tonfrequenz.

ANNOTATION:
Until May 2014 we offered Chiron tuning forks 171.80 Hz which was based on a orbital period of 50.7 year as it was given in the NASA Chiron Fact Sheet whereas lately another source of NASA, the JPL Small-Body Database Browser, specify a period of 50.39 years. After contacting the author of the Chiron Fact Sheet he updated the specification of the orbital period to 50.39 years as well. The author explains in an Email "I have not updated that fact sheet for some time, I would guess that with more information they have improved the orbit determination and the 50.39 year number is more accurate. I'll have to go through the fact sheet and update it." (which has actually been done).
