Station Map for the Occultation by (978) Aidamina at Saturday, 2009 June 13 (~ 01:47 UT)


V-Magnitude of target star TYC 1181-01105-1: 11.5 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.6
The UCAC2 gives a „pseudo-R magnitude“ of 11.3 mag

The max duration is expected to be 2.9 sec with a max drop of 3.4 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 30 deg and at azimuth 93 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -14 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 06 deg 30 min)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ±  0.60 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  59 %
Path limits: ~  45 %
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 !
