ASTEROID OCCULTATIONS: MISSIONS
Find an Asteroid Occultation Mission for your sky. Select a region below and choose an event near your location.
To find out if you will be in an asteroid’s shadow, simply zoom by scrolling on the map. If you are observing from anywhere between the two orange lines, you are qualified for the scientific mission! The closer you are to centrality, marked by the red line, the better chance you have of detecting the occultation.
Reading the Prediction Table:
- The Link automatically populates observing settings into the Unistellar app’s “Exoplanet transits” Science menu.
- Date is the observation start date in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time)
- Time UTC is the event’s observation start time in UTC. Your local start time may differ.
- Local is the observation start time in the time zone of your device’s browser.
