Verifiable binary microlens

Binary microlensing event OGLE-2009-BLG-020 gives a verifiable mass, distance and orbit predictions

The lens is bright enough for follow-up Doppler measurements. Not a planetary discovery but nonetheless will be good to see how well predictions made via microlensing match up with subsequent analysis.
