On the night of 24th of December 2016 asteroid 22 Kalliope will occult 9th mag star. The star is bright enough to be spotted using a telescope with 100 mm (4inch) primary mirror. The occultation path is about 160 k.m. wide. Indian astronomers are well placed to observe this event. <click here fore more>
