Occultation of 2.9 mag star by asteroid 4557 Mika

On 2012 Apr 09 23:33UT, the 20 km diameter asteroid (4557) Mika will occult a 2.9 mag star in the constellation Capricornus for observers along a path across India.

In the case of an occultation, the combined light of the asteroid and the star
will drop by 14.9 mag to 17.8 mag (the magnitude of the asteroid) for at most
0.7 seconds.
Details will be up soon.

  1. The numbers 2 21 51 45 46 59 lead me here (Page 14 on Google results). While involved in a serious scientific research study pertaining to the first physical evidence of the dinosaur extinction (a 75 mile long asteroid impact debris pile which houses millions of Dinosaur Bones blasted by high speed impact particles, Iron (Fe) metal Tektites, Accretionary Lapilli, 8mm Grey Impact Spherules, and various types of Impact Melt Glasses), an entity in the form of a bright White Light appeared on both June 6th 2002 and June 6th 2012 at the Discovery Site, located in the remote region of the North American West. My latest encounter with this Object, has initiated a series of important unanswered questions. I’m searching for these answers, wherever they may be.

    Should there be any “impressions” that some may exist here…please let me know.
