Station Map for the Occultation by (541) Deborah at Saturday, 2009 January 03 (~ 16:27 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 5235-00412-1: 11.0 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.5
The UCAC2 gives a “pseudo-R magnitude” of 11.0 mag

The max duration is expected to be 1.8 sec with a max drop of 4.8 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 40 deg and at azimuth 209 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -10 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 15 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ±  1.03 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  37 %
Path limits: ~  33 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 13 %
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 !

Good luck with your observation!
