2 Pallas Asteroid: Abebe Kebede

Pallas is one of the largest asteroids and is located in the main asteroid belt. It was discovered, by astronomer Heinrich Wilhelm Matthäus Olbers on March 28, 1802. Pallas was at first considered a planet, as were the other early asteroids 1 Ceres, 3 Juno, and 4 Vesta, until the discovery of many additional asteroids led to their re-classification.
