2002 AW197 was discovered on 10th January 2002 by Palomar. Its orbit takes 325.79 Years years to travel round the Sun.
The Aphelion of the object is 53.6129 A.U. which is the point in the orbit that is furthest from the object that it is orbit. At this point, it will then return back to the orbit target. The Perihelion of the object is 41.08034733374774 A.U. which is the point in the orbit that is closest to the object that it is orbit around. The Longitude of Ascending Node of the object is 297.535 degrees. The Argument of Perihelion is 295.0797. It is the angle along the orbit of a planet or other Solar System object as measured from the ascending node (analogous to right ascension and longitude) Ref:Hawaii.
The mean anomoly is 294.652, is the angular distance of the planet from the perihelion or aphelion. Ref:Dictionary.The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 47.34664199679072, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.
The orbital inclination, the angle at which 2002 AW197 orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 24.41072 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is .1323492944540338 , it is the degree at which 2002 AW197 orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
