Grazing with Team Occultation 2012-2014

Dave Gault


Team Occultation (Sydney and Canberra chapter) continues the tradition of observing lunar graze occultations. Despite the advances of technology like data from the lunar Kaguya orbiter, the lunar graze, observed by a team of determined astronomers, is still a true test of Lunar Theory and stellar catalogues.

This presentation summarises the grazes observed since NACAA XXV and suggests that a Melbourne chapter of Team Occultation would be a welcome addition and rival.
