This was my tenth successful observation of an asteroid occultation of a star in 2018.  It is my first year trying this activity and has been a steep learning curve.    The sky beforehand and shortly afterwards was not good, with cloud building but luckily it was clear at the right moment after having stayed up until 3:20am to be ready for it.
