Two occulations

Two more occultations after two years

On October 5 and 13, 2005, two positive occultations of stars by asteroids were recorded at Modra. Shadows of (397) Vienna and (100) Hekate were responsible, respectively. Only one such event from Modra was recorded before - in 2003 it was caused by (709) Fringilla. At that time smaller CCD-camera was used.

Observations: A. Galád (397) and J. Világi (100). Reduced by J. Mánek.
