{{#invoke:Infobox|infobox}} 109 Felicitas is a dark and fairly large main-belt asteroid. It was discovered by German-American astronomer C. H. F. Peters on October 9, 1869, and named after Felicitas, the Roman goddess of success.<ref name="Schmadel2012"/> The only observed stellar occultation by Felicitas is one from Japan (March 29, 2003).<ref>Observed minor planet occultation events, version of 2005 July 26</ref>

During 2002, 109 Felicitas was observed by radar from the Arecibo Observatory. The return signal matched an effective diameter of 89 ± 9 km. This is consistent with the asteroid dimensions computed through other means.<ref name="icarus186_1_126"/>
