Station Map for the Occultation by (481) Emita at Saturday, 2009 June 13 (~ 01:19 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 5263-00453-1: 11.3 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.4
The UCAC2 gives a „pseudo-R magnitude“ of 11.0 mag

The max duration is expected to be 5.2 sec with a max drop of 2.6 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 10 deg and at azimuth 114 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -18 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 15 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ±  0.42 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  77 %
Path limits: ~  49 %
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 !
