Station Maps for the Occultation by (599) Luisa at Tuesday, 2009 December 29 (~ 03:58 UT)
NORTH and SOUTH
V-Magnitude of target star HIP 26592: 6.6 mag
Spectral type K0
Johnson B-V Colour Index: +1.0
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 6.5 mag (data from UCAC3)
The max duration is expected to be 4.9 sec with a max drop of 6.4 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 34 deg and at azimuth 296 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -31 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 0.42 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 77 %
Path limits: ~ 49 %
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 !
