63252 (2001 BL41) is a large asteroid with an orbit between Jupiter and Neptune. NASA JPL has not classified 2001 BL41 as potentially hazardous because its orbit does not bring it close to Earth.
2001 BL41 orbits the sun every 11,300 days (30.94 years), coming as close as 6.95 AU and reaching as far as 12.78 AU from the sun. Based on its brightness and the way it reflects light, 2001 BL41 is probably between 12.722 to 28.447 kilometers in diameter, making it larger than 99% of asteroids, very roughly comparable in size to the city of Philadelphia.
2001 BL41's orbit is 5.98 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 BL41's orbit is determined by observations dating back to Oct. 21, 1996. It was last officially observed on July 4, 2021. The IAU Minor Planet Center records 102 observations used to determine its orbit.
