Minor Planet Occultations

(1937) Locarno on 10 February 2022

(1937) Locarno is estimated to only be about 13 Km in diameter and Great Shefford was predicted to be about 7 Km south of the path of the shadow for this event but a positive occultation was recorded, maximum duration was predicted to be 1.4 seconds and a 1.15 second ocultation was measured. At the time the minor planet was mag +16.1 and is too faint to see in the short gap in the star trail.
