Station Map for the Occultation by (656) Beagle at Thursday, 2009 February 12 (~ 19:48 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 1359-01412-1: 10.9 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.5
The UCAC2 gives a „pseudo-R magnitude“ of  10.9 mag

The max duration is expected to be 7.6 sec with a max drop of  3.4 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 55 deg and at azimuth 111 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -24 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude W 05 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 0.66 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  55 %
Path limits: ~  44 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 15 %
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 !
