Station Map for the Occultation by (1603) Neva at Friday, 2008 November 07  (~ 17:33 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 5836-00379-1: 9.3 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.5
Spectral Type: F2
The UCAC2 gives a “pseudo-R magnitude” of 9.3  mag

The max duration is expected to be 16.6 sec with a max drop of 5.8 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of  20 deg and at azimuth 134 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -11 deg. (At predicted centre line for latitude N 45 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ±  1.41 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~ 28 %
Path limits: ~  26 %
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.
