      Wow..... congratulations Andrea, Now we are really getting on to interior
      asteroids that are hardly even "near-Earth".

      Cheers,

        Way too early to look at resonances. The observations are compatible
        with an Amor orbit having a perihelion of 1.02 AU (though admittedly
        unlikely, because the aphelion would be 28 AU in that case). However,
        there are some perfectly reasonably (though of moderately high inclination)
        Apollo-type orbits that satisfy the observations at the 1.5 sigma level.
