Information about the predictions can be found in Lucky
Star project web page and in Assafin
et al. 2010 (for Pluto system predictions), Assafin
al. 2012 (for the TNO predictions) and Camargo
et al. 2014 (for TNO and Centaur predictions). Please, do
references about the predictions to Assafin et al. 2010 and 2012 or
Camargo et al 2014 papers. Most predictions here are done with our own
ephemeris, this is indicated on the top of the maps as NIMA ephem. NIMA-ephemeris
is calculated by Josselin Desmars and provided by a numerical
integration of the motion of the asteroid and by a fit to asteroid's
et al. 2015. The observations come from Minor Planet Center and
our own observations made at ESO, Pic du Midi, Calar Alto, Sierra
Nevada and Observatorio
do Pico dos Dias.

for all the results on TNO and Centaur occultations obtained so far.
We just entered on a new era for the
stellar occultations! With Gaia
DR2 catalogue, the prediction errors are much smaller due
to a accuracy of the star position and to re-reduction of the
objects observations with the referred catalogue associated and new
