Station Map for the Occultation by (449) Hamburga at Friday, 2008 November 07 (~ 18:04 UT)
Magnitude of target star 2UCAC 22342806: 12.2 mag
The max duration is expected to be 2.9 sec with a max drop of 3.2 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 11 deg and at azimuth 209 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -18 deg. (At predicted centre line for latitude N 50 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 0.67 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 55 %
Path limits: ~ 43 %
1 sigma lines: ~ 15 %
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.
