914 Palisana, provisional designation 1919 FN, is a Phocaea asteroid from the inner regions of the asteroid belt, approximately 77 kilometers in diameter. It was discovered by German astronomer Max Wolf at Heidelberg Observatory on 4 July 1919.[10]

The carbonaceous asteroid is classified as a CU-type on the Tholen taxonomic scheme. It orbits the Sun at a distance of 1.9–3.0 AU once every 3 years and 10 months (1,407 days). Its orbit has an eccentricity of 0.21 and an inclination of 25° with respect to the ecliptic.[3]

Measurements using the adaptive optics at the W. M. Keck Observatory give a diameter estimate of 76 km. The size ratio between the major and minor axes is 1.16.[4]

The minor planet is named after the Austrian astronomer Johann Palisa (1848–1925), who has discovered many asteroids himself between 1874 and 1923.[1]
