469372 (2001 QF298) is a very large asteroid whose orbit extends beyond the orbit of Neptune. NASA JPL has not classified 2001 QF298 as potentially hazardous because its orbit does not bring it close to Earth.
2001 QF298 orbits the sun every 91,000 days (249.14 years), coming as close as 35.36 AU and reaching as far as 43.80 AU from the sun. Based on its brightness and the way it reflects light, 2001 QF298 is probably between 224.158 to 501.233 kilometers in diameter, making it larger than 99% of asteroids, very roughly comparable in size to the U.S. state of South Carolina.
2001 QF298's orbit is 34.40 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.
2001 QF298's orbit is determined by observations dating back to May 23, 2001. It was last officially observed on Aug. 3, 2021. The IAU Minor Planet Center records 303 observations used to determine its orbit.
