Station Map for the Occultation by (6479) Leoconnolly at Monday, 2011 November 28 (~ 02:32 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 0089-01212-1: 10.2 mag
Spectral type: F0
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.9
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 9.7 mag (data from UCAC3)

 Trans-Atlantic-Event!

Path will cross SE U.S.A. and Mexico too.

The max duration is expected to be 1.1 sec with a max drop of 6.6 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 36 deg and at azimuth 233 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -42 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 5.65 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~ 7 %
Path limits: ~ 7 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 4 %
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.
