Station Map for the Occultation by (35) Leukothea at Thursday, 2008 October 30  (~ 03:27 UT)

TRANS-ATLANTIC EVENT!
Path is crossing Canada and U.S.A. too.
Please coordinate stations with OccultWatcher !

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 1772-00826-1: 11.2 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.9
The UCAC2 gives a „pseudo-R magnitude“ of 10.9 mag

The max duration is expected to be 6.5 sec with a max drop of 2.7 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of  37 deg and at azimuth 258 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -24 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ±  0.41 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~ 78 %
Path limits: ~  49 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 16 %
2 sigma lines: ~ 2 %

(Calculation according to Raymond Dusser, E.A.O.N. Circular #10)

PLEASE REMEMBER: Predictions are sometimes wrong. Please observe even with a small probability.
