Station Map for the Occultation by (1609) Brenda at Friday, 2009 May 29 (~ 02:18 UT)
Magnitude of target star 2UCAC 28232536: 11.2 mag
The max duration is expected to be 4.1 sec with a max drop of 2.6 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 31 deg and at azimuth 195 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -12 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 05 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 1.58 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 25 %
Path limits: ~ 24 %
1 sigma lines: ~11 %
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.
