Victoria is an asteroid, a large rock that orbits the Sun mainly between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. They tend to be an irregular shaped but Ceres asteroid is known to be spherical in shape but because it doesn't clear its path round the Sun, it is only a dwarf planet.
Victoria was discovered on Sep 13 1850 by John Russell Hind.
The absolute magnitude of the object is 7.24 which is the brightness of the object. A higher absolute magnitude means that the object is faint whereas a very low number means it is very bright.
The Perihelion of the object is 272.097 A.U. which is the point in the orbit that is closest to the object that it is orbit around.
The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 349.166, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.
The orbital inclination, the angle at which Victoria orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 8.363 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.221, it is the degree at which Victoria orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
