Occultation of P359.1

The following prediction is the result obtained from the measurement of 16 astrometric frames from the DuPont 100-inch telescope at Las Campanas Observatory, Chile, and 6 frames from the Hall 42-inch telescope at Lowell Observatory, AZ. These postitions are compared with the unmodified light-time corrected, geocentric JPL Horizon's ephemeris (PLU013 and DE-0406, LE-0406).
