Polymele Occultation 2022-03-27 (G* = 11.1)

The interactive map below shows our current prediction for the stellar occultation by (15094) Polymele on 2022 March 27 UT. The prediction is based on a Gaia EDR3 position for the star, corrected for parallax and proper motion, and the v20211118182302 orbit estimate for Polymele, which has a 1-sigma cross-track uncertainty of 1.9 km.

Geocentric mid-time of the event is 01:53:43 UT. Star position is RA 04:03:50.8, Dec +25:44:55 (J2000), and its magnitude is 10.36. Polymele is moving at 29 km/s with respect to the star and its diameter is estimated to be 29 km, so central chords are expected to last 1.0 seconds.
