Pelion is a large asteroid with an orbit between Jupiter and Neptune. NASA JPL has not classified Pelion as potentially hazardous because its orbit does not bring it close to Earth.
Pelion orbits the sun every 32,600 days (89.25 years), coming as close as 17.21 AU and reaching as far as 22.71 AU from the sun. Based on its brightness and the way it reflects light, Pelion is probably between 22.108 to 49.436 kilometers in diameter, making it larger than 99% of asteroids, very roughly comparable in size to the city of Indianapolis.
Pelion's orbit is 16.20 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.
Pelion's orbit is determined by observations dating back to Aug. 21, 1998. It was last officially observed on Sept. 2, 2005. The IAU Minor Planet Center records 65 observations used to determine its orbit.
