2012 FP35 is an Apollo asteroid about 11 meters in diameter, that made some close approaches to Earth.[2] It orbits the Sun every 583.2 days, in an ellipse between 0.749 AU and 1.983.[2] It was discovered on March 24, 2012 by the Catalina Sky Survey.[2]

This asteroids was calculated to have passed roughly 0.22 AU (33,000,000 km; 20,000,000 mi) from Earth on September 20, 2015.[3] It came within 0.00107 AU (160,000 km; 99,000 mi) of Earth on March 26, 2012.[4] The asteroid is about 7–15 meters in diameter.

The size of the asteroid is estimated from the absolute magnitude.[2]
