118698 (2000 OY51) is a large asteroid whose orbit extends beyond the orbit of Neptune. NASA JPL has not classified 2000 OY51 as potentially hazardous because its orbit does not bring it close to Earth.
2000 OY51 orbits the sun every 107,000 days (292.95 years), coming as close as 33.57 AU and reaching as far as 54.61 AU from the sun. Based on its brightness and the way it reflects light, 2000 OY51 is probably between 60.891 to 136.157 kilometers in diameter, making it larger than 99% of asteroids, very roughly comparable in size to the U.S. state of Delaware.
2000 OY51's orbit is 32.60 AU from Earth's orbit at its closest point. This means that there is an extremely wide berth between this asteroid and Earth at all times.
Orbital simulations conducted by NASA JPL's CNEOS do not show any close approaches to Earth.
2000 OY51's orbit is determined by observations dating back to July 28, 2000. It was last officially observed on Sept. 4, 2019. The IAU Minor Planet Center records 49 observations used to determine its orbit.
