About Asteroid Vesta: It is the brightest asteroid visible from Earth and is the second most-massive body in the asteroid belt (with the largest being the dwarf planet Ceres). It is thought that numerous fragments of 4 Vesta were ejected by collisions around two billion years ago. Vesta has been a rich source of information about asteroids, as debris from collisions have fallen to Earth in the form of these exotic howardite–eucrite–diogenite (HED) meteorites.
About Howardites: These are achondritic stony meteorites that originate from the surface of the asteroid 4 Vesta and are part of the HED meteorite clan. There are about 200 distinct members known members. Named after Edward Howard, a pioneer of meteoritics, Howardites are a regolith breccia consisting mostly of eucrite and diogenite fragments. The rock formed from impact ejecta which later found its way to earth.
