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.
Let other observers know about you observing plans: Announce you station with OccultWatcher !
