2015 VS168 is a large asteroid whose orbit extends beyond the orbit of Neptune. NASA JPL has not classified 2015 VS168 as potentially hazardous because its orbit does not bring it close to Earth.
2015 VS168 orbits the sun every 117,000 days (320.33 years), coming as close as 38.50 AU and reaching as far as 55.08 AU from the sun. Based on its brightness and the way it reflects light, 2015 VS168 is probably between 101.054 to 225.964 kilometers in diameter, making it larger than 99% of asteroids, very roughly comparable in size to the U.S. state of Connecticut.
2015 VS168's orbit is 37.50 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.
2015 VS168's orbit is determined by observations dating back to Nov. 19, 2014. It was last officially observed on Jan. 26, 2017. The IAU Minor Planet Center records 34 observations used to determine its orbit.
