Minor Planet (52768) 1998 OR2 Close approach

They are J2000 Astrometric unless you select Display Apparent Coordinates in the Ephemeris menu. There are no geocentric coordinates in SkyTools because there is always a location specified. The only exception is when you set the location on the Ephemeris to Geocentric. For the exact definitions, see the topic about coordinate systems in the help.
