Leucus Occultation 2018-12-13

The interactive map below shows our final prediction for the stellar occulation by (11351) Leucus on 2018 December 13 UT. The prediction is based on a Gaia DR2 position for the star and the v20181212210052 orbit estimate for Leucus. This orbit includes information from the November 2018 Leucus occultations.

Geocentric mid-time of the event is 18:20:17 UT. Star position is RA 20:58:32.0, Dec -06:39:36 (J2000), and its magnitude is 12.57. Leucus is moving at 31 km/s with respect to the star and its diameter is estimated to be 45 km, so central chords are expected to last 1.5 seconds.
