Station Map for the Occultation by (1240) Centenaria at Wednesday, 2008 December 10 (~03:19 UT)
Path is crossing the U.S.A. and Mexico too.
Magnitude of target star 2UCAC 4463928: 13.0 mag
The max duration is expected to be 4.6 sec with a max drop of 1.2 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 57 deg and at azimuth 275 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -45 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude W 02 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 0.68 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 54 %
Path limits: ~ 43 %
1 sigma lines: ~15 %
2 sigma lines: ~ 1 %
(Calculation according to Raymond Dusser, E.A.O.N. Circular #10)
