Attila, asteroid 1489 (the 1,489th asteroid to be discovered, on April 12, 1939), is approximately 15 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 5.7 years. Attila was named after the West's most famous barbarian, Attila the Hun. J. Lee Lehman associates this asteroid with power and dominance issues. Attila, she says, "signifies the fighter. The Attila type does not retire gracefully." Jacob Schwartz gives the astrological significance of this asteroid as "active dominance to get what one wants even fighting when it is unnecessary."
