The occultation of a star by asteroid Hedda (207) - 27 December 2014

And finally there is the tenth positive asteroidal occultation.

After several months of clouds there was a sunny day yesterday. Prediction of occultation was over 50% so I had to try it. During the night there were moments with clouds but approximately 10 minutes before occultation the sky had cleared and I started recording. Yes, I have got it. And this day is my birthday - what a special gift from heaven for me.
