Veritas, asteroid 490 (the 490th asteroid to be discovered, on September 3, 1902), is approximately 128 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 5.6 years. Its name is a personification of the Latin word for truth. In a natal chart, Veritas’s house and sign position indicates where one is especially able to perceive or search for the truth. When afflicted, Veritas may suggest “false truth.”
