My site had a 91% probability for this event so I was pleased to have clear skies when it mattered and I managed to record a 6.72 second occultation, which was near to the maximum predicted time of 7 seconds. Attached is the image for the shadow path as obtained from the IOTA updates feed from Occult Watcher.
