Victoria is a large asteroid orbiting between Mars and Jupiter in the main portion of the asteroid belt. NASA JPL has not classified Victoria as potentially hazardous because its orbit does not bring it close to Earth.
Victoria orbits the sun every 1,300 days (3.56 years), coming as close as 1.82 AU and reaching as far as 2.85 AU from the sun. Victoria is about 115.1 kilometers in diameter, making it larger than 99% of asteroids, comparable in size to the U.S. state of Delaware.
The rotation of Victoria has been observed. It completes a rotation on its axis every 8.66 hours.
Victoria's spectral type S (Tholen) / L (SMASSII) indicates that it is likely to contain magnesium silicate, iron silicate, and aluminum.
Victoria's orbit is 0.82 AU from Earth's orbit at its closest point. This means that there is a very 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.
Victoria's orbit is determined by observations dating back to Sept. 18, 1850. It was last officially observed on Nov. 8, 2022. The IAU Minor Planet Center records 3,582 observations used to determine its orbit.
