Comet P/2013 G1 (Kowalski) is an object whose orbit features a relatively short period, low inclination, and is controlled by Jupiter's gravitational effects. NASA JPL has not classified Kowalski as potentially hazardous because its orbit does not bring it close to Earth.
Kowalski orbits the sun every 6,590 days (18.04 years), coming as close as 3.35 AU and reaching as far as 10.40 AU from the sun.
Kowalski's orbit is 2.34 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.
Kowalski's orbit is determined by observations dating back to April 2, 2013. It was last officially observed on Dec. 10, 2014. The IAU Minor Planet Center records 261 observations used to determine its orbit.
