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.
Let other observers know about you observing plans: Announce you station with OccultWatcher !
