The orbital evolution of this asteroid has been studied by numerical integration methods, taking into account the pertubations by all major planets (Mercury through Neptune, Earth and Moon were treated as a single body). An interval of +/- 1 million year into the future and past is covered by these calculations. The latest osculating orbital elements were used, together with nine variational orbits in order to study the long-term dynamical evolution in a statistical sense. Conclusions about the dynamical lifetime of the orbit, and its implication for the age of the asteroid's surface will be discussed.
