Station Map for the Occultation by (889) Erynia at Thursday, 2011 May 26 (~ 00:45 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star HIP 85029: 8.2 mag
Spectral type: K4III
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 8.1 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 1.9 sec with a max drop of 7.1 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 30 deg and at azimuth 185 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -19 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 1.56 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  25 %
Path limits: ~  24 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 11 %
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.
