C-type asteroids are too dim to view without a telescope. They have a chemical composition similar to the sun's but lacking hydrogen, helium and other volatile elements.

Composition: Some oxygen and silicon, 80% . 20% mix of nickle, palladium, iridium Distance from the sun: 2.417 (A.U.)

size: 1.5 km in diameter

Orbital revolution: 1365.38 days/ 3.738 years
