Woohoo, i recorded the events on video and now all that is left to do is to reduce the obs.
A bit of fog around, it came in 30 mins before D and fortunately i was able to secure a good video on it regardless.
Well done OBMY!! That would have been a good one. :thumbsup:
Only just saw this post, but cloudy and drizzly here anyway.
Look forward to seeing what ya got. :D

Quite nicely visible here in Sydney at 17:20 UTC. Some transient cloud but it stayed away for the emergence. A star of 7th magnitude emerged about 1 hr later (18:24 UTC).
Thanks to Dave Gault for the heads up on the occultation.
