Eurynome is a large asteroid orbiting between Mars and Jupiter in the main portion of the asteroid belt. NASA JPL has not classified Eurynome as potentially hazardous because its orbit does not bring it close to Earth.
Eurynome orbits the sun every 1,400 days (3.83 years), coming as close as 1.98 AU and reaching as far as 2.91 AU from the sun. Eurynome is about 63.5 kilometers in diameter, making it larger than 99% of asteroids, comparable in size to the U.S. state of Rhode Island.
The rotation of Eurynome has been observed. It completes a rotation on its axis every 5.98 days.
Eurynome's orbit is 0.99 AU from Earth's orbit at its closest point. This means that there is an very 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.
Eurynome's orbit is determined by observations dating back to Oct. 5, 1863. It was last officially observed on Dec. 2, 2019. The IAU Minor Planet Center records 2,761 observations used to determine its orbit.
Scientists have been able to determine this object's shape.
