2001 KY76 is a very large asteroid whose orbit extends beyond the orbit of Neptune. NASA JPL has not classified 2001 KY76 as potentially hazardous because its orbit does not bring it close to Earth.
2001 KY76 orbits the sun every 91,400 days (250.24 years), coming as close as 30.22 AU and reaching as far as 49.18 AU from the sun. Based on its brightness and the way it reflects light, 2001 KY76 is probably between 160.160 to 358.129 kilometers in diameter, making it larger than 99% of asteroids, very roughly comparable in size to the U.S. state of Maryland.
2001 KY76's orbit is 29.20 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.
2001 KY76's orbit is determined by observations dating back to May 22, 2001. It was last officially observed on June 1, 2003. The IAU Minor Planet Center records 33 observations used to determine its orbit.
