This appulse event involves a Centaur. Although Pasco is north of the predicted shadow path, this event provides an excellent practice event for our Northern RECON Training Workshop.
Either before or after the event, you should make a short recording of your position information using the switch on the front of the IOTA-VTI box. Adjust the switch to POSITION, record the screen showing your latitude/longitude for 3-5 seconds, and then adjust the switch back to TIME.
Thank you for keeping track of your observations using the RECON Observation Logsheet.

The following chart was generated using the AAVSO Variable Star Plotter. Note that we have changed the orientation of the map so that it will match what you will see using the MallinCAM connected to the telescope with a diagonal. For the remainder of the project, we intend to provide star charts using this orientation.
