Station Map for the Occultation by (1458) Mineura at Friday, 2009 October 30 (~ 17:27 UT)

V-magnitude of target star TYC 5749-00957-1: 10.0 mag
Spectral type G0
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 1.0
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 9.7 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 0.8 sec with a max drop of 6.0 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of  23 deg and at azimuth 190 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -18 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 15 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 2.28 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  17 %
Path limits: ~  17 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 8 %
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 !
