(356713) 2010 GS25 vs 2014 QX220

These two asteroids have similar orbits:
(356713) 2010 GS25
2014 QX220

Mean motion uncertainty a little less than 10^-8 deg/day

I wonder if these two asteroids originated from a common parent body about 10Kyears ago.

Using the Mercury simulator by John Chambers on the nominal parameters, we have this result:

Year -8168
Distance = 0.0000232 (AU) about 3500 km
Relative Velocity = 7.270e-08 (AU/Day) about 12 cm/s

Kind Regards,
Alessandro Odasso
