UK Occultations Discussion Group

This is an astronomy group for discussing occultation observing and techniques. We are mostly UK based with contacts in the wider international community (BAA, IOTA, IOTA-ES). Anyone with an interest in our observing activities is invited to join.   [This group is migrated from Yahoo!] 

When an object passes in front of a star, we time when the star disappears and reappears to a fraction of a second. This improves our knowledge of the shape and position of the passing object - e.g; moon(s), asteroid, TNO.

We encourage preliminary reporting of any occultation phenomena: 1) Asteroid occs. and Pro-Am campaigns, 2) Total and grazing Lunar occultations, 3) double star occultation,  and more.
