Vesta (the minor-planet designation is 4 Vesta) is the second-most-massive and second-largest body in the asteroid belt.
Numerous fragments of Vesta were ejected by collisions one and two billion years ago that left two enormous craters occupying much of Vesta's southern hemisphere. Debris from these events has fallen to Earth as howardite–eucrite–diogenite (HED) meteorites, which have been a rich source of information about Vesta.
