Albion is a large asteroid whose orbit extends beyond the orbit of Neptune. NASA JPL has not classified Albion as potentially hazardous because its orbit does not bring it close to Earth.
Albion orbits the sun every 107,000 days (292.95 years), coming as close as 40.84 AU and reaching as far as 47.34 AU from the sun. Based on its brightness and the way it reflects light, Albion is probably between 92.163 to 206.082 kilometers in diameter, making it larger than 99% of asteroids, very roughly comparable in size to the U.S. state of Connecticut.
Albion's orbit is 39.80 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.
Albion's orbit is determined by observations dating back to Aug. 30, 1992. It was last officially observed on Jan. 2, 2019. The IAU Minor Planet Center records 91 observations used to determine its orbit.
