Station Map for the Occultation by (943) Begonia at Monday, 2008 December 15 (~ 20:18 UT)
V-Magnitude of target star TYC 5266-00737-1: 11.9 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.5
The UCAC2 gives a „pseudo-R magnitude“ of 11.5 mag
The max duration is expected to be 4.8 sec with a max drop of 9.6 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 19 deg and at azimuth 209 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -39 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude 0 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 0.97 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 39 %
Path limits: ~ 35 %
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.
