Station Maps for the Occultation by (3396) Muazzez at Thursday, 2009 October 29 (~ 01:52 UT)

NORTH and SOUTH

V-magnitude of target star 2UCAC 42388495: 10.9 mag
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 10.2 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 8.7 sec with a max drop of 5.5 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of  67 deg and at azimuth 135 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -40 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 4.68 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  9 %
Path limits: ~  8 %
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.
Let other observers know about you observing plans: Announce you station with OccultWatcher !
