Station Map for the Occultation by (3650) Kunming at Monday, 2009 March 30 (~ 22:26 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 1436-00958-1: 10.2 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.5
The UCAC2 gives a „pseudo-R magnitude“ of  10.0 mag

The max duration is expected to be 2.0 sec with a max drop of  7.4 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 60 deg and at azimuth 195 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -34 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 4.37 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  9 %
Path limits: ~  9 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 5 %
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 !
