Polymele Occultation 2022-08-26 (G* = 13.6)

The interactive map below shows our current prediction for the stellar occultation by (15094) Polymele on 2022 August 26 UT. The prediction is based on a Gaia EDR3 position for the star, corrected for parallax and proper motion, and the v20211118185722 orbit estimate for Polymele, which has a 1-sigma cross-track uncertainty of 2.6 km.

Geocentric mid-time of the event is 04:04:17 UT. Star position is RA 06:42:56.2, Dec +30:31:42 (J2000), and its magnitude is 12.80. Polymele is moving at 31 km/s with respect to the star and its diameter is estimated to be 29 km, so central chords are expected to last 0.9 seconds.
