Ingeborg is a large asteroid with an orbit that crosses the orbit of Mars. NASA JPL has not classified Ingeborg as potentially hazardous because its orbit does not bring it close to Earth.
Ingeborg orbits the sun every 1,290 days (3.53 years), coming as close as 1.61 AU and reaching as far as 3.03 AU from the sun. Ingeborg is about 15.8 kilometers in diameter, making it larger than 99% of asteroids, comparable in size to the city of Philadelphia.
The rotation of Ingeborg has been observed. It completes a rotation on its axis every 26.39 hours.
Ingeborg's orbit is 0.64 AU from Earth's orbit at its closest point. This means that there is a very 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.
Ingeborg's orbit is determined by observations dating back to Nov. 19, 1894. It was last officially observed on March 1, 2022. The IAU Minor Planet Center records 3,343 observations used to determine its orbit.
