We present results derived from the first multi-chord stellar occultation by the trans-Neptunian object (229762) 2007 UK126, observed on 2014 November 15. The event was observed by the Research and Education Collaborative Occultation Network project and International Occultation Timing Association collaborators throughout the United States. Use of two different data analysis methods obtain a satisfactory fit to seven chords, yielding an elliptical fit to the chords with an equatorial radius of… 

The Trans-Neptunian Object (84922) 2003 VS2 through Stellar Occultations

We present results from three world-wide campaigns that resulted in the detections of two single-chord and one multi-chord stellar occultations by the plutino object (84922) 2003 VS2. From the

A multi-chord stellar occultation by the large trans-Neptunian object (174567) Varda

We present results from the first recorded stellar occultation by the large trans-Neptunian object (174567) Varda that was observed on September 10$^{\rm th}$, 2018. Varda belongs to the

The first observed stellar occultations by the irregular satellite Phoebe (Saturn IX) and improved rotational period

We report six stellar occultations by Phoebe (Saturn IX), an irregular satellite of Saturn, obtained between mid-2017 and mid-2019. The 2017 July 6 event was the first stellar occultation by an

Study of the Plutino Object (208996) 2003 AZ 84 from Stellar Occultations: Size, Shape, and Topographic Features

We present results derived from four stellar occultations by the plutino object (208996) 2003 AZ84, detected on 2011 January 8 (single-chord event), 2012 February 3 (multi-chord), 2013 December 2

The 2017 May 20 stellar occultation by the elongated centaur (95626) 2002 GZ32

We predicted a stellar occultation of the bright star Gaia DR1 4332852996360346368 (UCAC4 385-75921) (mV = 14.0 mag) by the centaur 2002 GZ32 for 2017 May 20. Our latest shadow path prediction was

First stellar occultation by the Galilean moon Europa and upcoming events between 2019 and 2021

Context. Bright stellar positions are now known with an uncertainty below 1 mas thanks to Gaia DR2. Between 2019–2020, the Galactic plane will be the background of Jupiter. The dense stellar

Stellar occultations enable milliarcsecond astrometry for Trans-Neptunian objects and Centaurs

Context. Trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs) and Centaurs are remnants of our planetary system formation, and their physical properties have invaluable information for evolutionary theories. Stellar

The large trans-Neptunian object 2002 TC302from combined stellar occultation, photometry, and astrometry data

Context.Deriving physical properties of trans-Neptunian objects is important for the understanding of our Solar System. This requires observational efforts and the development of techniques suitable

Size and Shape of Chariklo from Multi-epoch Stellar Occultations

We use data from five stellar occultations observed between 2013 and 2016 to constrain Chariklo’s size and shape, and the ring reflectivity. We consider four possible models for Chariklo (sphere,

THE SIZE, SHAPE, ALBEDO, DENSITY, AND ATMOSPHERIC LIMIT OF TRANSNEPTUNIAN OBJECT (50000) QUAOAR FROM MULTI-CHORD STELLAR OCCULTATIONS

We present results derived from the first multi-chord stellar occultations by the transneptunian object (50000) Quaoar, observed on 2011 May 4 and 2012 February 17, and from a single-chord

Candidate stellar occultations by Centaurs and trans-Neptunian objects up to 2014

Context. We study trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs) from stellar occultations. Aims. We predict stellar occultations from 2012.5 to the end of 2014 by 5 Centaurs and 34 TNOs. Methods. These predictions

Candidate stellar occultations by large trans-Neptunian objects up to 2015

We study large trans-neptunian objects (TNOs) using stellar occultations. We derive precise astrometric predictions for stellar occultations by Eris, Haumea, Ixion, Makemake, Orcus, Quaoar, Sedna,

Stellar occultation by (119951) 2002 KX14 on April 26, 2012

Context. Trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs) are important bodies, but very little is known about their basic physical properties such as size, density, and albedo. Aims. We intend to determine sizes,

Precise predictions of stellar occultations by Pluto, Charon, Nix, and Hydra for 2008–2015

Context. We investigate transneptunian objects, including Pluto and its satellites, by stellar occultations.Aims. Our aim is to derive precise, astrometric predictions for stellar occultations by

Orbit determination of trans-Neptunian objects and Centaurs for the prediction of stellar occultations

Context. The prediction of stellar occultations by trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs) and Centaurs is a difficult challenge that requires accuracy both in the occulted star position and in the object

Possible ring material around centaur (2060) Chiron

We propose that several short duration events observed in past stellar occultations by Chiron were produced by rings material. From a reanalysis of the stellar occultation data in the literature we

Albedo and atmospheric constraints of dwarf planet Makemake from a stellar occultation

The disappearances and reappearances of the star were abrupt, showing that Makemake has no global Pluto-like atmosphere at an upper limit of 4–12 nanobar (1σ) for the surface pressure, although a localized atmosphere is possible.
