Station Map for the Occultation by (194) Pronke at Tuesday, 2011 May 24 (~ 21:41 UT)

Magnitude of target star 2UCAC 33976096: 11.6 mag
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 11.9 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 30.9 sec with a max drop of 0.5 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 26 deg and at azimuth 105 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -24 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: ~  76 %
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.
