Station Map for the Occultation by (2967) Vladisvyat at Wednesday, 2009 January 28 (~ 01:42 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 5555-00162-1: 9.9 mag
Spectral type G5
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.6
The UCAC2 gives a „pseudo-R magnitude“ of  9.7 mag

The max duration is expected to be 2.6 sec with a max drop of 7.4 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 14 deg and at azimuth 117 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -59 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude 0 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ±  3.01 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  13 %
Path limits: ~  13 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 7 %
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 !
