Occultation Observing Stats

Forums General Discussion Observing stats – how was 2016 for you? Occultation Observing Stats

Tim Haymes

Hi, I dont keep regular stats but the best month was November in terms of clear nights. Imaging took place on 11 clear evenings, and a number of Lunar occs were timed in Jan, Feb, Mar and Nov.  My tally for asteroid occultation observations over the year indicates a success rate of 8%.  I have also monitored more low probability events (small objects) this year than in past years.  All timings were reported to IOTA

In all 46 Negative (no occultation) and 4 very nice Positives asteroid events have been recorded.  So a good year for me.
