Station Map for the Occultation by (3650) Kunming at Monday, 2009 March 30 (~ 22:26 UT)
V-Magnitude of target star TYC 1436-00958-1: 10.2 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.5
The UCAC2 gives a „pseudo-R magnitude“ of 10.0 mag
The max duration is expected to be 2.0 sec with a max drop of 7.4 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 60 deg and at azimuth 195 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -34 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 4.37 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 9 %
Path limits: ~ 9 %
1 sigma lines: ~ 5 %
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.
