What package is need to make the Vesta symbol in LaTeX?

I am using wasysym (maybe misspelled here) package which generates \earth and the other planets.

However, I would like the symbol for Vesta and Ceres.

    Use the starfont package – user13907 May 8 '13 at 23:29

From the starfont package manual:


\newcommand{\showboth}[1]{\starfontsans #1 & \starfontserif #1}


\verb|\Ceres| & \showboth{\Ceres} & Ceres &
\verb|\Vesta| & \showboth{\Vesta} & Vesta 


Here is my screen shot:
