Station Map for the Occultation by (1632) Siebohme at Tuesday, 2009 February 03 (~ 18:35 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 0634-00848-1: 10.4 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.4
The UCAC2 gives a „pseudo-R magnitude“ of 10.3 mag

The max duration is expected to be 1.2 sec with a max drop of  6.1 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 55 deg and at azimuth 213 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of – 15 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude 0 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ±  2.30 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  17 %
Path limits: ~  17 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 8 %
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 !
