Three measurements with a 180 degree error in position angle appear to have led to the possible eclipse of Alpha Comae Berenices being missed due to an incorrect estimation of the eclipse time. I guess this isn't helped by the near-equal components which make it easier to confuse which is the primary.

Ouch. Hopefully there will be better luck in 2040... or maybe it will be possible to get lucky with the 3.3% chance of the secondary eclipse in 2026.
