Predicted shadow track for the September 10, 2018 stellar occultation by Varda; see the parameters in Table 2. Dark grey, light grey, and clear areas are in the night, twilight, and daytime, respectively. The Varda shadow is delimited by the continuous blue lines. It moves from north to south, and each bullet corresponds to one-minute intervals. The largest bullet corresponds to the geocentric closest approach. The red dashed lines show the 1σ path uncertainty, which is largely dominated by the uncertainties of the NIMAv6 ephemeris (Fig. 1) when compared to the position of the star (Table 2).
