Tárgy: Fw: [PLANOCCULT] Transneptunian and bright star Saturday evening.
A hír szerint az emlytett Neptunusz-túli kisbolygót 3 éve nem
észlelték, a pálya bizonytalansága olyan nagy, hogy az esemény
elorejelzése +/- 3 órára bizonytalan és a Földet el is
kerülheti. Tehát csak a legelszántabbaknak ajánlom!

I calculated a recent orbit from the 15 observations available.
The actual ephemeris error (1-sig) is about 0.14s in RA and 0.68arcs in
Together with ~40au geocentric distance the uncertainty is really
extreme large...
more than the diameter of the Earth...

Good luck to all trying this occultation!
Best regards, Mike
