I successfully observed this occultation from a site near Olds, Alberta, Canada. The location was at 114°00'03" west longitude, 51°50'11" north latitude, elevation 988m. I used a 6" f/8 reflector at 44X. Sky conditions were perfect, although it was a chilly -15°C.
I recorded the events by voice on a tape recorder with WWV broadcasting in the background. At home, I dumped the recording into the computer and reduced the WAV file. The results:
D 10:02:06.44 UTC (recorded) -0.74 (reaction time) = 10:02:05.7 UTC R 10:02:18.55 UTC (recorded) -0.55 (reaction time) = 10:02:18.0 UTC Duration = 12.3 secondsAlthough I was located at 70S, my duration suggests that I was considerably closer to the center line and that there was a south shift. The mid-time was only 2 seconds later than predicted.
