Station Map for the Occultation by (786) Bredichina at Thursday, 2009 February 12 (~ 17:04 UT)

Magnitude of target star 2UCAC 42568036: 11.0 mag

The max duration is expected to be 11.9 sec with a max drop of  3.0 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 49 deg and at azimuth 103 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -09 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 15 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 0.50 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  68 %
Path limits: ~  48 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 16 %
2 sigma lines: ~ 2 %

(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 !
