Station Map for the Occultation by (295) Theresia at Wednesday, 2009 January 21 (~ 20:14 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 1394-02059-1: 11.5 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.3
The UCAC2 gives a „pseudo-R magnitude“ of  11.3 mag

The max duration is expected to be 2.6 sec with a max drop of 2.2 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of  26 deg and at azimuth 92 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of – 32 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude 0 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 1.08 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  36 %
Path limits: ~  32 %
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 !
