The 2009 Homer F. DaBoll award recipient is Steve Preston from Seattle, Washington for his dedicated contributions in the prediction of asteroidal occultations worldwide. Prestonís webpage, www.asteroidoccultation.com is the standard source for prediction of asteroid occultations used by nearly all occultation observers worldwide.
