I recall something recently about a "close" encounter with a large asteroid? Is that it? I don't remember it's name though.

Ganymede?
Correct! Ganymede, the largest moon of Jupiter, is bigger than our Moon, Pluto, Mercury (but less than half of Mercury's mass) and a smidge bigger than Titan.

I think some clues are needed: They were German (18th-19th century). She discovered eight comets, and was actually the first woman to discover a comet. She lived to 98 years of age. When she was 21, her brother discovered something bigger.
