Magnitude of target star 2UCAC 38744206: 11.0 mag

The max duration is expected to be 16.3 sec with a max drop of 3.8 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of  60 deg and at azimuth 152 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of – 29 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 0.88 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  43 %
Path limits: ~  37 %
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.
