434326 (2004 JG6) is a small asteroid with an orbit that is entirely confined within Earth's orbit. NASA JPL has classified 2004 JG6 as a "Potentially Hazardous Asteroid" due to its predicted close pass(es) with Earth.
2004 JG6 orbits the sun every 185 days (0.51 years), coming as close as 0.30 AU and reaching as far as 0.97 AU from the sun. Based on its brightness and the way it reflects light, 2004 JG6 is probably between 0.530 to 1.186 kilometers in diameter, making it larger than ~97% of asteroids but small compared to large asteroids, very roughly comparable in size to the Golden Gate Bridge.
2004 JG6's orbit is 0.04 AU from Earth's orbit at its closest point. This means that there is an 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.
2004 JG6's orbit is determined by observations dating back to May 11, 2004. It was last officially observed on June 10, 2020. The IAU Minor Planet Center records 138 observations used to determine its orbit.
