Station Map for the Occultation by (328) Gudrun at Saturday, 2009 November 21 (~ 17:41 UT)

Magnitude of target star 2UCAC 23520344: 12.6 mag
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 12.7 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 5.4 sec with a max drop of 2.2 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of  20 deg and at azimuth 205 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -26 deg. (At predicted centre line for latitude N 45 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 0.82 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  46 %
Path limits: ~  39 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 15 %
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 !
