9 Metis is one of the largest Main belt asteroids. It is composed of silicates and metallic nickel-iron.
It was discovered by A. Graham on April 25, 1848 and it was his only asteroid discovery.
Lightcurve data on Metis led to assumption that it could have a satellite. However, subsequent observations failed to confirm this.  
Metis was observed with the Hubble Space Telescope in 1993. It was able to resolve the irregular shape of the asteroid, but no satellites were detected. 
Metis has been observed occulting a star no less than 5 times.
Metis is also the name of a satellite of Jupiter.
