Station Map for the Occultation by (844) Leontina at Wednesday, 2008 December 03 (~ 19:12 UT)
V-Magnitude of target star TYC 2416-00841-1: 11.4 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.4
The UCAC2 gives a „pseudo-R magnitude“ of 11.5 mag
The max duration is expected to be 5.0 sec with a max drop of 2.9 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 29 deg and at azimuth 69 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -27 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude W 05 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 0.62 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 58 %
Path limits: ~ 45 %
1 sigma lines: ~15 %
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.
