  (Redirected from 2007 CA19)

(481482) 2007 CA19 is a sub-kilometer asteroid, classified as near-Earth object and potentially hazardous asteroid of the Apollo group. It led the impact hazard list, with a Torino Scale impact risk value of 1, for one week, ending on February 19, 2007. Before and after 2007 CA19, 99942 Apophis was the object with the highest Palermo Scale rating. With an observation arc of 4.8 days, it had a Palermo Scale of −0.88.[2]

2007 CA19 was discovered on February 11, 2007 by the Catalina Sky Survey at the University of University of Arizona. The object is estimated at 966 metres in diameter with a mass of a 1.2x1012 kg. Until February 15, it had an impact probability of 1/625000 for the day March 14, 2012.[2] Additional observations through February 19 decreased the impact probability to ~1 in 300 million, making it of negligible concern. It was removed from the Sentry Risk Table on February 22, 2007.[3]

2007 CA19 passed about 0.007 AU (1,000,000 km; 650,000 mi) from Venus on 6 July 1946.[1]
