Station Map for the Occultation by (246) Poesia at Sunday, 2009 February 01 (~ 22:38 UT)
Magnitude of target star 2UCAC 40011153: 11.9 mag
The max duration is expected to be 4.8 sec with a max drop of 2.5 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 56 deg and at azimuth 195 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -50 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 11 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 0.75 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 50 %
Path limits: ~ 41 %
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.
