467460 (2006 JF42) is a very small asteroid whose orbit could bring it in close proximity to Earth. NASA JPL has classified 2006 JF42 as a "Potentially Hazardous Asteroid" due to its predicted close pass(es) with Earth.
2006 JF42 orbits the sun every 201 days (0.55 years), coming as close as 0.28 AU and reaching as far as 1.06 AU from the sun. Based on its brightness and the way it reflects light, 2006 JF42 is probably between 0.384 to 0.859 kilometers in diameter, making it larger than 90% of asteroids but tiny compared to large asteroids, very roughly comparable in size to the Golden Gate Bridge.
2006 JF42's orbit is 0.00 AU from Earth's orbit at its closest point. This means that its orbit is relatively close to Earth's orbit.
Orbital simulations conducted by NASA JPL's CNEOS do not show any close approaches to Earth.
2006 JF42's orbit is determined by observations dating back to May 11, 2006. It was last officially observed on April 14, 2021. The IAU Minor Planet Center records 200 observations used to determine its orbit.
