Asteroid occultation event on 2019 November 14

I've prepared finder charts from:
Digital Sky Survey (15 x 15 arcmin) and The Sky 6 (15x11 arcmin)

This is a rare event as the star being occult is Gamma Tauri, of magnitude 3.8 and is located at the vertex of the Hyades. Thus, simple photographic equipment that comes with time-stamp can be used. Anyone who like to venture into asteroid occultation timing should take this chance to begin.

IOTA/IOTA-ES occultation update for
(119) Althaea / HIP 20205 event on 2019 Nov 14, 14:00 UT
Visible from W Canada, Japan, SE Asia


Summary
-------
On 2019 Nov 14 UT, the 60.7 km diameter asteroid (119) Althaea will occult a
3.8 mag star in the constellation Taurus for observers along a path across W
Canada, Japan, SE Asia.

In the case of an occultation, the combined light of the asteroid and the star
will drop by 7.83 mag to 11.64 mag (the magnitude of the asteroid) for at most
6.3 seconds.

This update is based on UNSO/Flagstaff astrometry for the asteroid kindly
provided by Hugh Harris, astrometry for the asteroid kindly provided by Bill
Owen, astrometry for the asteroid kindly provided by the IAU Minor Planet
Center.
