Station Map for the Occultation by (1963) Bezovec at Sunday, 2009 February 15 (~ 20:52 UT)
V-Magnitude of target star HIP 66890: 8.4 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.4
Spectral Type F5
The UCAC2 gives a „pseudo-R magnitude“ of 8.6 mag
The max duration is expected to be 3.9 sec with a max drop of 6.0 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 19 deg and at azimuth 68 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -36 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 9 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 1.04 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 37 %
Path limits: ~ 33 %
1 sigma lines: ~ 13 %
2 sigma lines: ~ 1 %
(Calculation according to Raymond Dusser, E.A.O.N. Circular #10)
PLEASE REMEMBER: Predictions are sometimes wrong. Please observe even with a small probability.
