Juno (minor planet 3)
The ninth largest asteroid and third to
be discovered, in 1804 by the German astronomer Karl Harding (1765–1834).
Surface maps of Juno made from observations by the 100-inch Hooker Telescope
at Mount Wilson Observatory in 2003 show the presence of what may be a 96-km
(60-mile) wide crater.
|Images of asteroid 3 Juno taken with the Hooker telescope
