Station Map for the Occultation by (1567) Alikoski at Friday, 2009 January 16 (~ 02:16 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 2956-00625-1: 11.4 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 1.0
The UCAC2 gives a „pseudo-R magnitude“ of  10.8. mag

The max duration is expected to be 5.3 sec with a max drop of 2.8 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of  52 deg and at azimuth 284 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of – 43 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 15 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 0.73  path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  51 %
Path limits: ~  42 %
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.
Let other observers know about you observing plans: Announce you station with OccultWatcher !
