Station Map for the Occultation by (1129) Neujmina at Thursday, 2009 October 08 (~ 03:29 UT)

V-magnitude of target star TYC 1884-00712-1: 9.8 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.1
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 9.9 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 2.7 sec with a max drop of 5.7 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of  63 deg and at azimuth 138 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -21 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 1.16 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  33 %
Path limits: ~  31 %
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.
