Station Map for the Occultation by (129) Antigone at Monday, 2009 January 26 (~ 23:40 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 1379-00821-1: 9.6 mag
Spectral type G5
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 1.1
The UCAC2 gives a „pseudo-R magnitude“ of 9.3 mag

The max duration is expected to be 8.4 sec with a max drop of 1.8 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 48 deg and at azimuth 193 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -51 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 15 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ±  0.27 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  93 %
Path limits: ~  50 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 16 %
2 sigma lines: ~ 2 %

(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 !
