A Venus-crosser is an asteroid whose orbit crosses that of Venus. There are 2,479<ref name="jplcrosser">List of asteroids with q<0.718440 AU and Q>0.728213 Retrieved 2015-01-05</ref> Venus-crosser and 86 outer-grazers known.<ref name="jplgrazer">List of asteroids with 0.718440 AU<q<0.728213 Retrieved 2015-01-05</ref> Mercury-crossers or grazers are marked ‡.

Venus also has a quasi-satellite, 2002 VE68. This asteroid is also a Mercury- and Earth-crosser; it seems to have been a "companion" to Venus for the last 7000 years or so only, and is destined to be ejected from this orbital arrangement about 500 years from now.<ref>Asteroid 2002 VE68, a quasi-satellite of Venus</ref>
