Station Map for the Occultation by (1541) Estonia at Wednesday, 2009 July 15 (~ 21:26 UT)
V-Magnitude of target star TYC 7362-00162-1: 9.5 mag
Spectral type A3
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.5
The UCAC2 gives a „pseudo-R magnitude“ of 9.5 mag
The max duration is expected to be 2.9 sec with a max drop of 5.9 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 19 deg and at azimuth 177 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -18 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 0 deg 33 min )
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 2.77 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 14 %
Path limits: ~ 14 %
1 sigma lines: ~7 %
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.
