The stellar occultation technique is a unique and reliable method to investigate the size, shape, and environment around Solar System objects. One of the indispensables of this technique is multi-chord observations. Sometimes collecting observational data and equipment details from observers affects prolonged research time. For this reason, we aimed to create a common online platform where the needed data will be collected and analyzed (producing light curves/photometry) on a single center for ongoing campaign observations.
OccultationPortal is a web-based astronomical archive and analysis platform for aiming the fast, efficient, and centralized management of occultation observation campaigns called by the Lucky Star Project/Paris Observatory/LESIA
. This platform is a scientific initiative conducted in partnership with a TÜBİTAK National Observatory (Turkey)
, Akdeniz University (Turkey)
, The Federal University of Technology – Paraná (Brasil)
, and the Paris Observatory/LESIA Lucky Star Project (France)
For detailed information about the Occultation Portal's structure, you can review the presentation at the 39th ESOP
