My 3rd asteroid for #AsteroidDay 🪨

On June 13 I observed Jupiter Trojan (24459) 2000 RF103 occult a star ⭐️

There was only a 3% chance I'd observe this occultation given the width of the uncertainty region.

Since starting my #astronomy hobby in February, I've made 267 observations of 202 unique objects, including:

129 galaxies, 32 nebulae, 37 star clusters, 3 asteroids, 1 comet, and an exoplanet transit!
