Magnitude of target star 2UCAC 39809218: 11.7 mag

The max duration is expected to be 7.3 sec with a max drop of 2.8 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of  29 deg and at azimuth 88 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -49 deg. (At predicted centre line for latitude N 50 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ±  0.91 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~ 42 %
Path limits: ~  37 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 14 %
2 sigma lines: ~ 1 %

(Calculation according to Raymond Dusser, E.A.O.N. Circular #10)
