Occultation Prediction Website

Post by JayTee »


I just came across this website. It's fun to use and appears to give accurate information about your location.

Give it a try: https://eco.mtk.nao.ac.jp/cgi-bin/koyom ... x_p_en.cgi

Cheers,

Cheers,
I also have a website that give worldwide predictions of stars brighter than 4th mag and planets for 2022.
Currently working on predictions for 2023. Lot of other details there for asteroids occultations.

For prediction of minor planetary occultations (stars by solar system asteroids and planetary moons),
https://cloud.occultwatcher.net/

It's not the most intuitive to use.

You need to first select a feed to get predictions. Some feeds are geographic, eg TRANS-TASMAN is for Australia and New Zealand, others are global but specialise on certain types of bodies eg Trojan or Trans Neptunian Asteroids.

An easier site to use though less full featured is
https://www.asteroidoccultation.com/ which is a global feed of brighter stars. You'll need to sort through them to find those in your area.

I observed one of these events visually back in the 1980's. Pretty cool thing to see.

These days, serious observers record on video with a GPS time signal inserted into the display/recording.

The Occult 4 software on the website is the goto for this kind of thing. You can enter your location and it will show anything within a certain distance among other criteria.
