Narcissus is a large asteroid with an orbit between Jupiter and Neptune. NASA JPL has not classified Narcissus as potentially hazardous because its orbit does not bring it close to Earth.
Narcissus orbits the sun every 6,590 days (18.04 years), coming as close as 3.07 AU and reaching as far as 10.68 AU from the sun. Narcissus is about 11.2 kilometers in diameter, making it larger than 99% of asteroids, comparable in size to the city of Cleveland, Ohio.
Narcissus's orbit is 2.08 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.
Narcissus's orbit is determined by observations dating back to March 7, 1984. It was last officially observed on Feb. 2, 2020. The IAU Minor Planet Center records 533 observations used to determine its orbit.
