Arawn is a large asteroid whose orbit extends beyond the orbit of Neptune. NASA JPL has not classified Arawn as potentially hazardous because its orbit does not bring it close to Earth.
Arawn orbits the sun every 90,900 days (248.87 years), coming as close as 34.86 AU and reaching as far as 44.24 AU from the sun. Based on its brightness and the way it reflects light, Arawn is probably between 76.658 to 171.412 kilometers in diameter, making it larger than 99% of asteroids, very roughly comparable in size to the U.S. state of Delaware.
The rotation of Arawn has been observed. It completes a rotation on its axis every 5.49 hours.
Arawn's orbit is 33.80 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.
Arawn's orbit is determined by observations dating back to May 12, 1994. It was last officially observed on July 9, 2021. The IAU Minor Planet Center records 95 observations used to determine its orbit.
