Station Map for the Occultation by (883) Matterania at Tuesday, 2011 November 29 (~ 03:16 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 01801-00686-1: 9.5 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 1.2
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 9.1 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 1.1 sec with a max drop of 5.6 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 28 deg and at azimuth 277 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -34 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 2.78 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~ 14 %
Path limits: ~ 14 %
1 sigma lines: ~ 7 %
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.
