I did not know about this till today, unfortunately I am too far north, and the weather is not looking too good on Monday:
Can a 7-kilometer-wide asteroid make Sirius disappear? You bet it can. That just might happen on Monday night, February 18th. That evening around 10:30 p.m. MST (5:30 UT February 19th), there's a good probability that the 17th-magnitude 4388 Jürgenstock will occult the sky's brightest star for up to 1.8 seconds.

Plus it seams that the forecast occultation track has now shifted much further to the east.
