469438 (2002 GV31) is a large asteroid whose orbit extends beyond the orbit of Neptune. NASA JPL has not classified 2002 GV31 as potentially hazardous because its orbit does not bring it close to Earth.
2002 GV31 orbits the sun every 106,000 days (290.21 years), coming as close as 39.99 AU and reaching as far as 47.89 AU from the sun. Based on its brightness and the way it reflects light, 2002 GV31 is probably between 139.494 to 311.918 kilometers in diameter, making it larger than 99% of asteroids, very roughly comparable in size to the U.S. state of Maryland.
The rotation of 2002 GV31 has been observed. It completes a rotation on its axis every 29.20 days.
2002 GV31's orbit is 39.00 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.
2002 GV31's orbit is determined by observations dating back to April 6, 2002. It was last officially observed on March 23, 2015. The IAU Minor Planet Center records 81 observations used to determine its orbit.
