Eurybates Occultation 2021-11-09 (G* = 11.6)

The interactive map below shows our current prediction for the stellar occultation by (3548) Eurybates on 2021 November 9 UT. The prediction is based on a Gaia DR2 position for the star, corrected for parallax and proper motion, and the v20210113204032 orbit estimate for Eurybates, which has a 1-sigma cross-track uncertainty of 14.8 km.

Geocentric mid-time of the event is 03:39:34 UT. Star position is RA 03:46:47.3, Dec +22:18:42 (J2000), and its magnitude is 12.42. Eurybates is moving at 15 km/s with respect to the star and its diameter is estimated to be 66 km, so central chords are expected to last 4.3 seconds.
