Eurybates Occultation 2019-11-29

The interactive map below shows our current prediction for the stellar occulation by (3548) Eurybates on 2019 November 29 UT. The prediction is based on a parallax-corrected Gaia DR2 position for the star and the v20191122222203 orbit estimate for Eurybates, which has a 1-sigma cross-track uncertainty of 3 km.

Geocentric mid-time of the event is 23:14:41 UT. Star position is RA 22:53:18.0, Dec -14:16:03 (J2000), and its magnitude is 8.88. Eurybates is moving at 13 km/s with respect to the star and its diameter is estimated to be 66 km, so central chords are expected to last 5.2 seconds.
