Station Map for the Occultation by (453) Tea at Wednesday, 2008 November 05 (~ 00:31 UT)
V-Magnitude of target star TYC 1784-00200-1: 10.1 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 1.3
The UCAC2 gives a „pseudo-R magnitude“ of 9.7 mag
The max duration is expected to be 1.8 sec with a max drop of 3.6 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 72 deg and at azimuth 193 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -62 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude 0 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 1.26 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 31 %
Path limits: ~ 29 %
1 sigma lines: ~ 12 %
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.
