Station Map for the Occultation by (1755) Lorbach at Thursday, 2008 November 06 (~ 01:16 UT)
V-Magnitude of target star TYC 0252-00306-1: 9.5 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.1
Spectral Type G0
The UCAC2 gives a „pseudo-R magnitude“ of 9.6 mag
The max duration is expected to be 1.0 sec with a max drop of 7.1 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 11 deg and at azimuth 93 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -47 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 11 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 2.30 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 17 %
Path limits: ~ 17 %
1 sigma lines: ~ 8 %
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.
