(153201) 2000 WO107 is a small asteroid that is a Near-Earth object and an Aten asteroid.

Orbit[edit]

The orbit of (153201) 2000 WO107 has been well-established with over 14 years of observations. The orbit of (153201) 2000 WO107 makes it a potentially hazardous asteroid (PHA)[5] that is predicted to pass within 0.001629 AU (243,700 km) of the Earth in the year 2140.[2] For comparison, the distance to the Moon is about 0.0026 AU (384,400 km). However, the asteroid does not appear on the list of PHA close approaches issued by the Minor Planet Center (MPC).[6]

The Jupiter Tisserand invariant, used to distinguish different kinds of orbits, is 6.228.[2]

Physical characteristics[edit]

The SMASSII spectral type is X.[4]
