Asteroid YB35 safely flew by Earth on 27 March 2014, and was spotted by NASA and observed by the Goldstone Observatory on 20 March 2015. On this day, the asteroid was expected to be in a optimal position so that the observatory could obtain coarse radar images.
These measurements helped determine the asteroid's composition.
Asteroid YB35 will orbit again near Earth in 2033.
