Station Map for the Occultation by (4013) Ogiria at Sunday, 2009 January 04 (~ 23:38  UT)

V-Magnitude of target star HIP 24512: 6.3 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.1

The max duration is expected to be 1.2 sec with a max drop of 10.5 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 56 deg and at azimuth 237 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -66 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ±  6.88 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  6 %
Path limits: ~  6 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 3 %
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.
