Cerberus



Asteroid 1865, Cerberus, an Apollo asteroid, was discovered on October 26, 1971 by Lubos Kohoutek at Hamburg-Bergsdorf Observatory in Hamburg, Germany. It has a period of 1 year, 44 days and is about 9/10 of a mile in diameter.

It was named for Cerberus, the multiheaded dog who guarded the gates of the realm of the dead in Greco-Roman mythology and ensured that no one having crossed into Hades would return. Hercules brought him out of Hades as one of his famous Twelve Labors.
