Abstract: The region of the magnetosphere of Saturn around 14 radii and 19 radii has been of special interest since the detection of anomalous dips in the low-energy plasma ion-density in these regions by the Voyager 1, Voyager 2 and Pioneer 11 spacecrafts. The authors have observed the occultation of the star SAO158913 from two stations in India following predictions by Mink. This star showed symmetric dips in the light curves on 24 March 1984 (immersion event) and on 25 March 1984 (emersion event), suggesting the possible presence of particulate matter.
