3 Juno, the third asteroid to be discovered, is one of the two largest stony asteroids in the Main Belt.

Like 1 Ceres, Juno is home to a well-known "truck stop and diner" facility. Unlike Ceres, Juno City and the other Junonian settlements are inhabited primarily by Belters; not the ones who mine asteroids, but those who provide services to the miners. The government in Juno City also administers the colonies on 2090 Mizuho and 46610 Bésixdouze so that the locals in both settlements can concentrate on teaching.
