Station Maps for the Occultation by (912) Maritima at Sunday, 2011 September 25 (~ 03:51 UT)

WEST and EAST

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 2447-00490-1: 9.9 mag
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 9.1 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 3.5 sec with a max drop of 3.8 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 62 deg and at azimuth 102 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -17 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.
