H Tim,

My observatory is in Deal which was within the red boundary bars for this occultation. It was a bit of a ‘first light’ experience for my new video camera. Beautifully clear skies. We managed to get set up and recording using the Watec 910 and a 50mm camera lens, So I have a video encompassing the predicted event. Very exciting as it shows stars to 10th mag and a satellite passing through about 8th mag. Playing it back at slow speed I can confirm there was no occultation visible from here. Very pleased to report, even a negative report is useful.

Not within the red bars on the update… shame!
