Station Maps for the Occultation by (4925) 1981 XH2 at Sunday, 2009 February 15 (~ 00:41 UT)


V-Magnitude of target star HIP 32055: 6.3 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.1
Spectral type A2

The max duration is expected to be 4.5 sec with a max drop of 9.6 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 23 deg and at azimuth 265 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -50 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 15 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ±  5.34 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  8 %
Path limits: ~  7 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 4 %
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 !
