Occultations Involving Lucy Mission Targets in 2022

This year, you can observe any of Lucy’s targets: Eurybates, Polymele, Leucus, Orus, and Patroclus! The table below shows which asteroids you can detect. The link will direct you to more details on each asteroid occultation, including a map showing its visibility across the globe.

We would like to thank the Lucky Star team of the Observatoire de Paris who made these occultation predictions available.
