Small pieces of rock, with a big influence (just ask the dinosaurs).

The third asteroid to be discovered (in 1804 by Karl Harding), Juno is the ninth-largest and one of the brightest as seen from Earth.

On the morning of the 10th, around the 3am CDT hour, Juno will appear "stationary". These past few days in entered Aquila from Scutum and after the 10th will scoot back toward Scutum. During its stationary period it can be found 1˚47' south-southwest of the magnitude 3.4 B-class star Althalimain.
