Okyrhoe is a relatively small asteroid with an orbit between Jupiter and Neptune. NASA JPL has not classified Okyrhoe as potentially hazardous because its orbit does not bring it close to Earth.
Okyrhoe orbits the sun every 8,840 days (24.20 years), coming as close as 5.82 AU and reaching as far as 10.91 AU from the sun. Okyrhoe is about 36.0 kilometers in diameter, making it larger than most asteroids, comparable in size to the city of Los Angeles.
The rotation of Okyrhoe has been observed. It completes a rotation on its axis every 9.72 days.
Okyrhoe's orbit is 4.84 AU from Earth's orbit at its closest point. This means that there is a 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.
Okyrhoe's orbit is determined by observations dating back to Sept. 13, 1998. It was last officially observed on Aug. 18, 2018. The IAU Minor Planet Center records 537 observations used to determine its orbit.
