Station Map for the Occultation by (38) Leda at Wednesday, 2009 December 02 (~ 22:21 UT)

Magnitude of target star 2UCAC 42546290: 11.7 mag
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 11.9 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 12.4 sec with a max drop of 0.6 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 57 deg and at azimuth 144 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -51 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 0.52 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  66 %
Path limits: ~  47 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 16 %
2 sigma lines: ~ 2 %

(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 !
