Event Details: IOTA Event Page for (362) Havnia
Of Date Coordinates: RA = 11:07:04 DEC = 16:33:13
J2000 Coordinates: RA = 11:06:10 DEC = 16:38:52
Note: This optional RECON campaign is best for communities from Arizona and Southern California up to Southern Oregon.
The Prediction Map for (362) Havnia below shows the anticipated path of this slow-moving occultation shadow, along with many of the details we typically provide on for official RECON campaigns. Teams should record for 2 minutes before and after the predicted shadow passes over your location. As the map shows, the shadow prediction for Yuma Arizona (on the US-Mexico border) is 06:54 UT — so Yuma should record from 06:52-06:56.
