553893 (2012 BW154) is a very large asteroid whose orbit extends beyond the orbit of Neptune. NASA JPL has not classified 2012 BW154 as potentially hazardous because its orbit does not bring it close to Earth.
2012 BW154 orbits the sun every 112,000 days (306.64 years), coming as close as 39.24 AU and reaching as far as 51.92 AU from the sun. Based on its brightness and the way it reflects light, 2012 BW154 is probably between 201.630 to 450.858 kilometers in diameter, making it larger than 99% of asteroids, very roughly comparable in size to the U.S. state of West Virginia.
2012 BW154's orbit is 38.30 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.
2012 BW154's orbit is determined by observations dating back to Dec. 20, 2004. It was last officially observed on May 3, 2021. The IAU Minor Planet Center records 175 observations used to determine its orbit.
