Abstract:
We present data for an asteroidal occultation between TNO (38628) Huya and a bright star (mv = 10,6), which took place on for 2019, March 18th. The occultation was observed from two locations, separated by 60 km from Ploiesti and Bucharest. Our photometric data allowed us to determine a minimum diameter for this distant minor planet. Our data are a part of an international observing campaign which took place in Europe.
