Mithra Asteroid

3D model description

4486 Mithra (1987 SB) was discovered on September 22, 1987 by E. Elst, V. Ivanova, and V. Shkodrov at the Bulgarian National Observatory in Smolyan. Mithra (a = 2.20 AU, e = 0.66, i = 3.0!) belongs to the Apollo class and it crosses the orbits of both Earth and Mars. Its perihelion lies just outside the orbit of Venus, so it also makes close approaches (<0.02 AU) to this planet. Mithra has an absolute magnitude of 15.6, suggesting a diameter of roughly 2 km, but otherwise its physical properties are unknown.
