3 Juno is 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.
