Angelina (minor planet 64)
The second largest known E-type asteroid, after Nysa (see Nysa-Polana family), and one with an unusually high albedo. Angelina was discovered by E. Wilhelm Tempel in 1861. Whereas most E-class asteroids dominate the Hungaria group region of the main asteroid belt, Angelina is one of the few that orbit much further out.
