A spell of clear skies arrived just in time for this event which enabled me to obtain my first positive asteroidal occultation for this year. A good number of other observers across europe were successful as well, so a detailed follow up of results is expected. From my location I recorded a 16 second occultation. I have attached my light curve of the event which shows a good S/N ratio.
