2002 TJ301 is a large asteroid whose orbit extends beyond the orbit of Neptune. NASA JPL has not classified 2002 TJ301 as potentially hazardous because its orbit does not bring it close to Earth.
2002 TJ301 orbits the sun every 105,000 days (287.47 years), coming as close as 42.21 AU and reaching as far as 45.11 AU from the sun. Based on its brightness and the way it reflects light, 2002 TJ301 is probably between 17.481 to 39.088 kilometers in diameter, making it larger than 99% of asteroids, very roughly comparable in size to the city of Indianapolis.
2002 TJ301's orbit is 41.20 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.
2002 TJ301's orbit is determined by observations dating back to Oct. 6, 2002. It was last officially observed on Oct. 7, 2002. The IAU Minor Planet Center records 41 observations used to determine its orbit.
