[help] Satellite orbit question

I swear this went through Link Salad in the last year or two, but I cannot run it down.

Is there a stable configuration for extremely long-term orbits (millennia or more) for artificial satellites? I recall reading that at least one satellite has been placed in such an orbit. I'm trying to sort out if that's true, and if so, is there a name for such an orbit?

Why, yes, this is rocket science.
