Observations Of The Occultation Of Asteroid Chariklo

This very short video shows what happened when the asteroid Chariklo passed in front of a star. As well as the expected drop in brightness when the asteroid blocked the light of the star two smaller dips were seen, before and afterwards, caused by the presence of a double ring.

Enjoy and share…..
