7335 (1989 JA) is a mid-sized asteroid whose orbit crosses the orbit of Earth. NASA JPL has classified 1989 JA as a "Potentially Hazardous Asteroid" due to its predicted close pass(es) with Earth.
1989 JA orbits the sun every 861 days (2.36 years), coming as close as 0.91 AU and reaching as far as 2.63 AU from the sun. 1989 JA is about 1.8 kilometers in diameter, making it larger than 99% of asteroids, comparable in size to Mount Everest.
The rotation of 1989 JA has been observed. It completes a rotation on its axis every 2.59 hours.
1989 JA's orbit is 0.02 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.
1989 JA has 6 close approaches predicted in the coming decades:
