2002 VC95 is a large asteroid whose orbit extends beyond the orbit of Neptune. NASA JPL has not classified 2002 VC95 as potentially hazardous because its orbit does not bring it close to Earth.
2002 VC95 orbits the sun every 117,000 days (320.33 years), coming as close as 46.84 AU and reaching as far as 46.86 AU from the sun. Based on its brightness and the way it reflects light, 2002 VC95 is probably between 66.766 to 149.293 kilometers in diameter, making it larger than 99% of asteroids, very roughly comparable in size to the U.S. state of Delaware.
2002 VC95's orbit is 45.80 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.
2002 VC95's orbit is determined by observations dating back to Nov. 12, 2002. It was last officially observed on Nov. 30, 2002. The IAU Minor Planet Center records 11 observations used to determine its orbit.
