Stonehenge


Asteroid 9325, Stonehenge, was discovered on April 3, 1989 by Eric W. Elst at the European Southern Observatory. It has a period of 3 years, 287 days.

It was named for one of Britain's most famous historic sites, Stonehenge, a prehistoric circular complex of large standing stones, just west of the town of Amesbury in Wiltshire county, southwest England. It was likely a burial ground and site of religious worship, and some parts of it may have been used for astronomical observation.

The meaning of asteroid Stonehenge, according to Henk Middelraad, who designed its glyph, is: Stone Age thinking; also, possibly, ancient spirituality or culture influencing the present.
