Abstract: On 2021 October 1 st the Trojan asteroid (15094) Polymele occulted the star UCAC4_567-010317. The occultation path was precalculated for the Iberian Peninsula. Predictions from the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) and the Instituto de Astrofisica de Andalucia (IAA) gave different zones for the shadow path. Therefore two expeditions were organised and carried out. The paper shows the organisation, the team training and the experiences of both teams.
