(379) Huenna

Reference work entry

Discovered 1894 Jan. 8 by A. Charlois at Nice.

This is the Latin form for Hveen. Tycho Brahe {see planet  (1677)} observed for more than 20 years on this small island in the Sound between Denmark and Sweden. See also the citations for planets  (499) and  (1678). This interpretation was given by P. Colombier who found “Huenne” under the entry Tycho-Brahé in the Grand Vocabulaire Français (1773). (J. Meeus)
