Station Map for the Occultation by (105) Artemis at Tuesday, 2009 February 03 (~ 19:53 UT)

Magnitude of target star 2UCAC 29228009: 13.5 mag

The max duration is expected to be 10.4 sec with a max drop of  0.49 mag only..
The event will take place at an altitude of 32 deg and at azimuth 153 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of – 29 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude 0 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ±  0.93 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  41 %
Path limits: ~  36 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 14 %
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 !
