Bettina, asteroid 250 (the 250th asteroid to be discovered, on September 3, 1885), is approximately 128 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 5.6 years. It was named after the baroness Rothschild, who, according to Jacob Schwartz, “purchased the right to name the asteroid for the fifty pounds the discoverer needed to finance a solar eclipse expedition.” In a natal chart, Bettina may show where one gives or is otherwise generous with an expectation of reward.
