Station Map for the Occultation by (105) Atemis at Tuesday, 2008 December 30 (~19:12 UT)

Magnitude of target star 2UCAC 28151691: 12.0 mag

The max duration is expected to be 8.7 sec with a max drop of 1.2 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 14 deg and at azimuth 124 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -42 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 20 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ±  1.06 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  36 %
Path limits: ~  33 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 13 %
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.
Let other observers know about you observing plans: Announce you station with OccultWatcher !
