Station Maps for the Occultation by (387) Aquitania at Sunday, 2010 January 03 (~ 20:44 UT)

SOUTH and NORTH

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 5276-00904-1: 10.7 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.5
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 10.6 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 5.3 sec with a max drop of 2.2 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of  20 deg and at azimuth 222 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -46 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 05 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 0.50 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  68 %
Path limits: ~  48 %
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 !
