Station Map for the Occultation by (1596) Itzigsohn at Friday, 2008 November 07 (~ 20:58 UT)
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)
PLEASE REMEMBER: Predictions are sometimes wrong. Please observe even with a small probability.
