Occultation of A 9th Magnitude Star by the Asteroid Eros

On Tuesday, August 2, 2016, the small asteroid 433 Eros will eclipse a star (HIP 110246) along a path stretching from Europe to Asia. Part of that path crosses northern Iran north of Tehran and perhaps touching the south edge of the Caspian Sea at 20:41:40 UT. This converts to 01:11:40 am in Wednesday August 3. The path is a mere 15 km. The star is magnitude 8.68 and so there will be a 3.4 magnitude drop (as seen visually) for up to a short 1.8 seconds!!
