Eurybates Occultation 2020-11-01 (G* = 11.1)

The interactive map below shows our current prediction for the stellar occultation by (3548) Eurybates on 2020 November 1 UT. The prediction is based on a Gaia DR2 position for the star, corrected for parallax and proper motion, and the v20200901190242 orbit estimate for Eurybates, which has a 1-sigma cross-track uncertainty of 11.9 km.

Geocentric mid-time of the event is 20:03:03 UT. Star position is RA 01:06:01.5, Dec +02:51:34 (J2000), and its magnitude is 12.05. Eurybates is moving at 14 km/s with respect to the star and its diameter is estimated to be 66 km, so central chords are expected to last 4.7 seconds.
