35396 (1997 XF11) is a small asteroid whose orbit crosses the orbit of Earth. NASA JPL has classified 1997 XF11 as a "Potentially Hazardous Asteroid" due to its predicted close pass(es) with Earth.
1997 XF11 orbits the sun every 633 days (1.73 years), coming as close as 0.74 AU and reaching as far as 2.14 AU from the sun. 1997 XF11 is about 0.7 kilometers in diameter, making it larger than ~97% of asteroids but small compared to large asteroids, comparable in size to the Golden Gate Bridge.
The rotation of 1997 XF11 has been observed. It completes a rotation on its axis every 3.26 hours.
1997 XF11's orbit is 0.00 AU from Earth's orbit at its closest point. This means that its orbit is very close to Earth's orbit.
Orbital simulations conducted by NASA JPL's CNEOS do not show any close approaches to Earth.
1997 XF11's orbit is determined by observations dating back to March 22, 1990. It was last officially observed on June 12, 2021. The IAU Minor Planet Center records 1,917 observations used to determine its orbit.
