145 Adeona

This minor planet is named after the Roman goddess of homecomings, and the end of a long trip. It was so named because the discoverer, C. H. H. Peters, had just returned from a trip to observe the transit of Venus. This goddess forms a pair with Vibilia, goddess of traveling.

The symbol of this minor planet is a bisected Latin capital letter A, in a shape as to suggest an arrow pointing up to home.
