Station Map for the Occultation by (1902) Shaposhnikov at Friday, 2011 April 22 (~ 03:15 UT)
Path will cross Canada too.
Magnitude of target star 2UCAC 32545066: 11.8 mag
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 12.1 mag (data from UCAC3)
The max duration is expected to be 5.9 sec with a max drop of 3.9 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 29 deg and at azimuth 246 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -24 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude W 05 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 0.93 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 41 %
Path limits: ~ 36 %
1 sigma lines: ~ 14 %
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.
