Station Map for the Occultation by (2453) Wabash at Thursday, 2011 December 01 (~ 21:14 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 2416-00024-1: 9.1 mag
Spectral type K2
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 1.3
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 8.5 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 1.6 sec with a max drop of 6.5 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 56 deg and at azimuth 97 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -53 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 4.44 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~ 9 %
Path limits: ~ 9 %
1 sigma lines: ~ 5 %
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.
