Gearing up for 2 Campaigns in Early December

RECON is preparing to observe two separate occultation events in early December.  The first event involves 2013 WV107 on December 1 UT (the night of November 30-December 1) and the second event involves Bienor on December 5 UT (the night of December 4-5). Both events involve Centaurs occulting very faint stars so our teams will have to spend time making sure the star field is sharply focused, but the shadow path positions and uncertainties make these very high probability events for the network.
