112 Year of Knowing Asteroid 589 Croatia

The asteroid was discovered on 3 March 1906, located in the outer regions of the asteroid belt, approximately 88 kilometers in diameter. Named after the independent country of Croatia, then part of Austria-Hungary, discovered by astronomer August Kopff at Heidelberg Observatory. It's so exciting celebrating this amazing anniversary from Zagreb, capital of Croatia, now an EU member. Have a great day!
